How do we think and imagine cultural and art institutions nowadays? How they need to be transformed to meet the needs of the artists and professionals in the field?
Biljana Tanurovska – Kjulavkovski, cultural manager, curator and researcher, and cofounder and executive director of Lokomotiva, will take the example of North Macedonia and wider region of former Yugoslavia to explore the needs in the art field of contemporary performing arts, offering approaches of modelling and governing contemporary performing art institutions coming from the independent cultural and art sector.
This new Members Talk will provide the opportunity to learn more on new approaches to cultural and art institutions based on co-curation and shared leadership, from an activist, self-organized, and horizontal approach of governing, as well as modelling based on shared policies and participative approach.
Based on her ENCATC Book Series publication, Modelling Cultural and Art Institutions, Biljana Tanurovska-Kjulavkovski will guide us through her perspective on governance and management in culture as a socially relevant and aware field.
New approaches also motivate shifts in terms of new skills and competences that cultural and arts institutions need to acquire in order to better respond to the needs of professionals and artists. This discussion will be addressed in dialogue between the author and Milena Dragićević-Šešić, prof. Emerita of the University of Arts in Belgrade, Serbia.
