Cultural Leadership & Innovation
Utopias, Strategies and Challenges of Arts Management
The term “cultural leadership” has gained increasing attention in the discourses of cultural management and cultural policy, as well as in the curricula of international study programmes and higher education programmes. In many of these contexts, “cultural leadership” is presented as a force for innovation and transformation of organizations and societies.
The 11th Annual Conference of the Association for Arts Management (Fachverband Kulturmanagement for Germany, Austria & Switzerland) takes this observation as a starting point for an interdisciplinary, international gathering of researchers and practitioners in the field of arts management. The conference focusses on two different aspects, reflecting two different readings of the concept of “cultural leadership”: Firstly, “cultural leadership” is often used as a (usually not clearly defined) term for management and leadership processes in cultural organizations in general. Secondly, the term can also refer more broadly to processes of cultural development and cultural exchange on a bigger social or even international scale, for example in the context of cultural diplomacy. Read the full conference description in our Call for Papers.
The program will be announced in autumn and will be available for download here.
Keynote Speakers: Prof. Dr. Andreas Reckwitz, Professor for Comparative Cultural Sociology, Europa-Universität Viadrina (Frankfurt / Oder), Amelie Deuflhard, Artistic Director Kampnagel (Hamburg), more tba.
