Birgit Mandel Arts/Cultural Management in International Contexts

Results of a Research on the views of arts/cultural managers around the world regarding their profession, working conditions, current challenges, required competencies, and training opportunities. Hildesheim 2017

Cultural managers are increasingly engaged in international projects; they work in international art festivals, global companies of the creative industries, or international tourism. They are involved in cultural diplomacy and cultural development cooperation; and moreover, in times of an increasing worldwide migration, cultural managers are engaged in moderating “intercultural” change management processes in their own countries.

How is internationalization influencing cultural management? Is there a tendency towards harmonization of management practices due to cultural globalization?

How do cultural managers from different world regions describe their working conditions also in terms of cultural policy, and which differences can be observed?

What are the main challenges of international cultural cooperation, which competencies are needed for working in international and intercultural contexts, and which training concepts in international cultural management proved to be successful?

These questions are investigated on the basis of a world wide survey of cultural managers. Expert interviews and analyses of international trainings programs based on theoretical reflections.

Kulturagenten als Kooperationsstifter? Förderprogramme der Kulturellen Bildung zwischen Schule und Kultur

In diesem Buch entwickeln die AutorInnen Grundlagen zur systematischen Erforschung von Förderprogrammen der Kulturellen Bildung. Im Mittelpunkt steht das Programm Kulturagenten für kreative Schulen, das vor dem Hintergrund der Organisationstheorie des Neo-Institutionalismus sowie mit qualitativen und quantitativen empirischen Methoden analysiert wird. Das Untersuchungsinteresse galt dabei vor allem der Frage, ob und wie das Programm zum Aufbau von Kooperationen zwischen Schulen und Kultureinrichtungen beitragen konnte.
