Mission & Content Summary

MISSION

The pre-course is strongly recommended for all the enrolled ACME students without any previous knowledge or experience in arts management. This crash course is aimed at providing students with a general knowledge about the issues that they will 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.

CONTENT SUMMARY

  • 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: who are the actors and how do they interact?
  • Managing cultural organizations: a call for revision of the traditional models
  • Arts organisations as service organizations: models and characteristics.
