CfP: Cultures of Participation 2018

Over the last decade cultural participation and cultures of participation have received increased (and renewed) attention within different academic disciplines, cultural institutions and societal sectors – and over time also more critical reflection. On policy levels, citizen participation and engagement are emphasized as key components of democratic societies and these policies are currently being practiced and put to work at cultural institutions and cultural houses, in artistic production, in architectural and urban ‘smart city’ designs and various digital media spaces. But what are the characteristics of cultural participation and how do these manifest themselves in cultures of participation? This is the central question of the "Cultures of Participation" conference that will take place at Aarhus University in April 2018. Deadline for submission is 5 January 2018.

Arts Management Quarterly No 127: Culture and Urban Development

The impact of the arts sector on urban development is very heterogeneous. The latest version of the two most important international roadmaps on this topic, United Nation’s New Urban Agenda and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, acknowledge arts and culture as facilitators in fields such as social cohesion, education, or well-being. But to implement these effects into urban development road maps, the patterns and demands of local cultural infrastructures first have to be specified. Such basic work is the perfect starting point for arts professionals and artists to become part of comprehensive urban planning processes. Issue No 127 of Arts Management Quarterly sheds light on the impact that arts and culture can have on urban development. With it, we hope to inspire you to dive deeper into urban trends and to develop visions for the city of the future.

The Culture of Cooperation. Structures, Processes, and Cultural Practices

In the cultural sector and in cultural policy, international cooperation is taken for granted. But to be truly fruitful, cultural exchange must be on an equal footing. But what does that mean? Are arts organizations really on a par with their partners? Is it really fair cooperation they pursue? With her award-winning doctoral thesis, Dr. Annika Hampel has triggered the discussion of a topic debated still much too rarely. Below, she gives a brief introduction to a very complex subject.

Emilio Piñango studied dance, arts management and arts education at universities in Venezuela and Spain. He worked as performing arts manager for the Ministry of Culture Venezuela and just started a PhD program in Arts at the Sorbonne University, France. Based on this manifold background, we talked to him about cultural policies and audience development for the performing arts. And as this interview is part of our series on cultural managers in Central and South America, he shared with us his experiences on the differences of studying arts management in Venezuela and Europe, and how the respective knowledge can be transferred to another region of the world.
