This one-day seminar will address the following questions:
What is cultural governance?
How is cultural governance understood in different contexts, and more particular in the Taiwanese context?
The challenges facing managing successful arts and cultural institutions globally nowadays is immense. The traditions of cultural organizations receiving government (or similar) financial support are increasingly being challenged by revisions of policy and other financial changes. In this seminar we want to focus on the changing interpretations of cultural governance from an intercultural perspective and how cultural organizations need to adapt their working to this changing context. Therefore the organizations need also an adapted kind of leadership.
Yet, our understanding of the global picture of good practice in ‘cultural governance and leadership’ is weak. Predominantly, what we know is gathered from a narrow literature and set of understandings that is mainly western (from predictable locations, for example: UK, USA and Europe).
The premise of this seminar is that this literature and set of understandings may be of only limited value to arts and cultural institutions located outside these western locations – and in fact, our concern is that this literature might be doing more harm than good.
Accordingly, the aim of this seminar is to discuss the guise of cultural governance and leadership across a number of regions/locations across the globe. We want to discuss and change ideas about the way arts and cultural organizations are managed in a non-western location and what we can learn from each other!
The seminar will focus on processes and encourage feedback and dialogue. The seminar will look at the impact of these understandings for the future.
This seminar is a follow up of the European “education in cultural leadership” project of 2015-2016.
