About this book


“This volume will go a long way towards filling the gap in this woefully under-researched field. The volume’s chapters expertly explore the conditions in which artistic cooperation takes place, as well as actual practice on the ground, before charting out possible new engagements in transcultural relations.” —Yudhishthir Raj Isar, Professor of Cultural Policy Studies, The American University of Paris, France, and the European University Institute, Italy


“This timely collection addresses one of the most pressing global issues of our time, how culture is managed, framed and negotiated, and in a variety of domains. The chapters cover an excellent range of topics from a range of disciplinary perspectives and approaches, with many drawing on the first hand experiences of the authors. By foregrounding the undercurrents of ‘cultural crossovers’, the collection offers fascinating and critical insights into culture today.”— Sarita Malik, Professor of Media, Culture and Communications, Brunel University London, UK

This book provides new insights into the relationship of the field of arts and cultural management and cultural rights on a global scale.

Globalisation and internationalisation have facilitated new forms for exchange between individuals, professions, groups, localities and nations in arts and cultural management. Such exchanges take place through the devising, programming, exhibition, staging, marketing, and administration of project activities. They also take place through teaching and learning within higher education and cultural institutions, which are now internationalised practices themselves. 

With a focus on the fine, visual and performing arts, the book positions arts and cultural management educators and practitioners as active agents whose decisions, actions and interactions represent how we, as a society, approach, relate to, and understand ourselves and others. This consideration of education and practice as socialisation processes with global, political and social implications will be an invaluable resource to academics, practitioners and students engaging in arts and cultural management, cultural policy, cultural sociology, global and postcolonial studies.
