How to deal with cultural diversity? Limits between inclusion and exclusion
Our understanding of culture is an important tool in our cultural life and consumption.
Exercising as a cultural manager implies knowing how to manage a plurality of social, political, artistic, economic, technological or educational logics, just to mention a few. This is problematic that we face in the current global problems and further visible issues in the future.
Therefore, we will find in our field common issues such as prejudices; Racism, sexism or heterosexism, among others. Intolerance is also clearly related to manifestations of prejudice of a higher order, such as discrimination through legal and organizational policies, the symbolic annihilation of groups in the media and everyday forms of discrimination, whether overt or subtle. We are trying to explore the limits between inclusion and exclusion in terms of cultural knowledge, aesthetics and experience.
