From 4-5 October In Lucca, Italy, this workshop focused on temporary organizing and temporality in Cultural and Creative Industries, and discussed the need for a profound reflection on the specific characteristics of the arts and heritage field in related research. A broad spectrum of 43 participants from Italy, Luxembourg, Denmark, US, Germany, and South Africa, ranging from academics to prominent practitioners from the field, shared their experiences, research projects and insights, and explored the potential for an integrative approach while simultaneously identifying the gaps and needs to be addressed in current scholarship on related topics.
The workshop acknowledged that the temporal scales and contexts of organizing in the Cultural and Creative Industries are constituted by different logics of organizing, and the discussions contributed to our understanding of the ways in which cultural institutions are organized to achieve their programming choices and how they get engaged with their temporal, social and institutional settings through their projects.
The workshop was ultimately intended to trigger cross-disciplinary exchange and to set the basis for future collaboration in both conceptual and empirical research directions. As the future workshop outputs, the proceedings book with the participants’ lectures, manuscripts and discussions is forthcoming in March 2019.
