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.

Reflections on the Workshop “Intercultural Relations in Arts and Cultural Management Higher Education”

On July 6 and 7 2017, I attended the third seminar of the network “Brokering Intercultural Exchange” taking place in Zürich, Switzerland. Participating in this seminar was very special to me because it was the best gathering of Arts/Cultural Management academics, practitioners, and students I have have ever attended. To this appraisement, I have identified eight qualities that continue to come up in conversations like a leitmotiv from a Wagnerian opera. These include the call for proposals, host, location, intimate gathering, brilliant colleagues, no egos, subject matter, and future collaborations.

New Places + Spaces + Faces. A review of the first American Association of Arts Administration Educators (AAAE) Conference on European ground

The 36th Annual AAAE conference was hosted by Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh between May 31st and June 2nd 2017 and was therefore a new place for the Association that met outside the USA for the first time. The fact, that the conference took place in Europe, surely resulted in several new faces. One third of the participants were so-called first timers (assumedly several of them Europeans who took advantage of not having to travel that far).

How Globalization affects Arts Managers

This research seeks to develop greater understanding of the impacts of globalization, digitalization, and (im)migration on the work of arts managers and arts management researchers. Different from studies that focus specifically on those who work exclusively in international contexts, this paper aims to present current research based on an international empirical study of arts managers who do not necessarily cross borders for their work and who would in most cases not even consider their work international as such. The findings are a brief excerpt of the results of an online survey in October and November 2015 among 352 arts managers in 46 countries. It dealt inter alia with the question how globalization affects the day-to-day work of arts managers and how they deal with the challenges globalization imposes on them.
