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.

Cultural and Creative Industries Fuel Global Economy and Provide 29.5 million Jobs Worldwide

With revenues of US$2,250 billion, Cultural and Creative Industries account for 3% of world GDP and employ 29.5 million people (1% of the world’s active population). Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) revenues exceed those of telecom services and employ more people than the car industry of Europe, Japan and the USA combined (29.5 million vs. 25 million). This major contribution of CCI to the global economy is explained in a new study, jointly presented by the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, France, and published by EY (formerly Ernst & Young).

Nesta and CCI: Taking the Creative Economy Seriously. How to bolster the status of the creative industries as a serious economic force

While prepairing our next AMN newsletter about new developments and research in Cultural Entrepreneurship, we came across this article by Hasan Bakhshi, who is founding member of the British government’s Creative Industries Council, director for Creative Economy in Policy & Research at Nesta's, deviser of the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts in England, Scotland and Wales and much more. In 2013, he wrote a contribution for us about "Nesta and CCI: Taking the Creative Economy Seriously. How to bolster the status of the creative industries as a serious economic force" that hasn't lost any of it's relevance and can be transferred to a lot of countries at least in the western world. At Nesta's, he has also been one of the three makers of the Nesta/CCI study „A Dynamic Mapping of the UK's Creative Industries“. His "Manifesto for the Creative Industries" proposes ten system recommendations for a fresh policy that establishes the creative industries as a serious economic force throughout Europe and beyond.

He expresses his idea of a distinction between leadership and ‘leading-ship’, and advocate a personal responsibility model for organising work to facilitate creativity, productivity and efficiency amongst people.

Ethical standards for unpaid internships

After graduating from university highly educated people frequently start working as interns and then find themselves in an endless loop of internships. This situation is even worse considering that only few of them get paid. In addition to that internships only seldomly come with job description and performance feedback is rarely given. Sonja Ostendorf-Rupp recommends some minimum requirements to be adapted by arts organizations on both sides of the ocean.

Our arts organisations are in a dance of death

Arts organisations and museums all over the country will have been scrambling to get their grant applications in to the Arts Council by 12pm. And they should be worried. The news in all of the culture pages in newspapers is bleak. Stories abound about local authority cuts and Arts Council cuts, and rightly so, because without investment the arts and cultural industries are at risk.
