4TH WORKSHOP ON 'MANAGING CULTURAL ORGANISATIONS'


BOLOGNA, ITALY, OCTOBER 25-26, 2012
CO-ORGANIZED WITH



University of Bologna

 


IMAGINE – CBS


 

CHAIRPERSONS

Luca Zan (University of Bologna)

Jesper Strandgaard Pedersen (CBS, Copenhagen)

BACKGROUND

Arts organisations, exhibitions centres, galleries, museums, and performing arts institutions have increasingly been put under pressure in the name of improved business efficiency and customer satisfaction in recent years. Privatisation, ‘companisation’ and managerialisation processes are often suggested as the solution for the survival of such entities. However management and economic views tend to assume the character of a self-referential, arbitrary and even colonialist imposition of economic theory and management rhetoric on professional contexts and disciplines, which fail to be understood at the managerial and political levels. Serious conflicts between arts professionals and management experts are perceived all over the world, in both the performing arts and the visual art world, though in different forms.

Following the first two workshops (London, January 2001; Bologna, December 2004; Bologna, September 2008), the aim of the workshop is to provide a forum for a fresh debate and dialogue between conflicting views between these two worlds, trying to understand better the logic, patterns and possible consequences of the variety of changes occurring in the management practices currently being adopted for arts organisations. In this sense the International Workshop is directed not just to management scholars and experts, but to all types of cultural professionals involved in the processes of creating and presenting the arts and broadened cultural services, as well as managing their organisations. Indeed, co-authored papers by professionals and academics bringing together specialities (arts/heritage/management) will be especially welcome.

RELATED EVENTS (1): SPECIAL ISSUE ON PLANNING & HERITAGE

A special issue on Planning & Heritage will be edited by Luca Zan and Maria Lusiani, for the recently launched Journal of Cultural Heritage Management and Sustainable Development.

The idea is to bring together different points of view from various disciplines on the practice of planning in heritage sites (master plans, management plans, conservation plans, and the like) and other arts and culture organizations/contexts (urban development, cultural projects, cultural policies and development). Papers presented at the special track on planning & heritage will be considered for the special issue. (Details will follow).

RELATED EVENTS (2): A WORKSHOP ON TEACHING ARTS MANAGEMENT

The day following the workshop, October 27, a one day meeting on the teaching of arts management will be held at the Department of Management, University of Bologna.

Perspectives and opportunities toward a more integrated European and worldwide collaborations at the level of Masters and PhD will be discussed. (Details will follow.)
