Go to class group/s: 1
Class-group lessons delivered on campus
The pre-course is strongly recommended for all the enrolled ACME students. This crash course is aimed at providing students with a general knowledge about the issues that they encounter all along the two-years course. In fact, students with poor or defective basics in arts management have the opportunity to become familiar with these topics. Without the ambition of being exhaustive, the main issues in the policy and management of the arts and culture arise from the lectures and in-class discussions.
- Art organisations: for-profit or not-for-profit? Discussing the main characteristics of the cultural sector from an organisational perspective.
- Cultural consumption: main issues in the phenomenon of cultural consumption.
- Cultural policies compared. Nations, regions and cities operate with different means, institutions and scope in delivering cultural policy.
- Art and economics. The relationship between art and economics is explored beginning from the different perception of value in their own remits.
- Managing cultural organizations. The art of management is applied with ambiguous results to the management of art organizations and art people.
- Arts organisations as service organizations: models and characteristics.
