Department of Cultural Policy

Welcome to the Department of Cultural Policy!

The Department of Cultural Policy, founded in 1998, focuses its work on the representatives, the content and the structures of cultural policies, arts management and arts education in Germany and in international contexts. It is a part of arts and cultural studies at University of Hildesheim. The close relation to the Departments of Fine Arts, Music, Theatre, Literature, Popular Culture, Media and Philosophy at the University enables us to teach and research areas of cultural policy and man­agement which take account of the audience and are also appropriate to the arts. The Department of Cul­tural Policy embraces a concept of culture which is on the one hand focused on the theory and practice of the arts, and on the other hand, on the sociological, educational, political and economic effects of artistic and creative processes in society.

You can learn more about our Department accessing our yearly in-house publication „Kultur.Politik.Diskurs. Aus Lehre und Forschung des Instituts für Kulturpolitik der Universität Hildesheim“! which - starting in 2018 - is published in a bilingual version.
