Vera Allmanritter, Research Fellow at the University of Hildesheim, Germany
In my opinion science has always been a global phenomenon and can only
thrive through exchange. Thinking and working across national borders is
natural to me but I sometimes miss this approach among academics in
German speaking countries. From managingculture.net I expect an
open-minded international knowledge exchange among colleagues and the
collaborative development of new ideas, concepts and networks.

Dounia Benslimane, Partnership and Development Director at Racines Association, Morocco
Joining the Brokering International Network is an opportunity to bring a perspective from the South, in arts and cultural management. Contexts, challenges and capacities are different but the aims and objectives can be the same, and sometimes different. We all work to developing projects and reach audiences. In my country and in the region, arts and culture might represent a tool for democracy and human and social development and it can face other threats (censorship, freedom of expression issues, access to public space, education…).

Ushma Chauhan Jacobsen, Associate Professor, Department of English, School of Communication and Culture, Aarhus University, Denmark
I would like to connect with the network to foster stronger ties to practitioners and researchers working within the field of Arts and Cultural Management with a view to engage in new collaborative partnerships in the future. These collaborations could involve both student and faculty exchanges between institutions as well as larger research projects.
Quinhan Chen, PhD researcher in Music at the Reid School of Music, University of Edinburgh, UK
My area of interest is identity, intercultural communication, and learning in world music. I am currently researching on the relation between musical and intercultural understanding, which may learn from as well as inform the studies of arts and cultural management in an intercultural context. Hope I may meet and communicate with more researchers who share similar interests here.

Karin Drda-Kühn, Managing Director of Association Culture & Work and assistant professor at Heilbronn University and at the PhD programme in heritage studies of Brandenburg, Germany
Cultural and heritage management offer unique opportunities for young researchers and professionals likewise. The majority of emerging business fields has strong links to creativity and innovation and cultural managers should be trained to unlock the respective potentials. This is unimaginable without trustful networks on national, European and international level. Networks need collaborative environments in order to foster fruitful cooperation and the Manging Culture Network is therefore a huge chance to provide actors in the field with this kind of environment.

Ruth Graham, Golden Threat Gallery, Belfast, UK
The seminar in Belfast that I attended was an inspiring and meaningful oasis in a week of austerity and bad politics. It reminded me that radical thinking is usually the best response to prosaic situations and that art can be a beautiful force for change. Memorable moments include the vision that shone through the seven minute presentations, Shelley Tracey’s water metaphor for art, what Constance Devereaux said and the wisdom of Jo Caust.

Steven Hadley, Queen’s University Belfast, UK
Aside from the obvious benefits of engaging with a community of scholars in my own field and being able to extend and share my knowledge and understanding – I think there are many interesting parallels between discourses around interculturalism and those of audience development (my area of expertise). Many of the ideological issues associated with audience development and discourses of democracy in arts management and cultural policy are also at play in interculturalism, so I feel I have much to add and to learn.

Annika Hampel, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
In a globalized world, the arts – as well as arts education and research – can only flourish in an atmosphere of international collaboration. However, successful intercultural exchanges are contingent on good preparation, and the presence of appropriate frameworks, structures, and processes. This international network brings together experts from a variety of backgrounds to present, share, and discuss the success and failure of intercultural arts projects in order to learn from each other, and help to create the right conditions for international partnerships to be at their fairest and most effective.

Gabriele Landwehr, Head of Goethe Institute Arab Emirates
It has become a normalcy that we communicate with global partners on a daily level – in English which, in many cases, is not the native language of the communicator. And in a number of cases we are taken in by the assumption that all is fine and we understand each other perfectly. We move in a meta world where we are prone to conflicts if we do not raise awareness and increase the knowledge about other cultures. Intercultural exchange and learning are a must in our world with migration and cohabitation of people with different ethics, values and religions. All is not fine – but we can act to make it better.

David Maier, D. Candidate, Arts Management, Heilbronn University, Germany
Being the officer of cultural management in a town with more than 60% migration background, my daily work has always been in the context of globalization and integration – and still it is. Furthermore the international aspects of my work are showed by programming different international cultural festivals and within my work as a freelancer for the Goethe-Institut. So for me, dealing with culture means always dealing with change and different intercultural challenges. That is why another important part of my work is education and research, focused on how foreign cultural policy can be transferred in good practice of international cultural management. It might sound obvious, but for me brokering intercultural exchange means learning, sharing and empowering. The network will surely help me to gain knowledge about intercultural understanding – and the other way around I hope to enrich the network too.

Miguel Peromingo, Consultant and writer in the fields of cultural management and international migration, Berlin, Germany
From managingculture.net I expect to tap into skills and creativity potential from artists and cultural managers who work internationally and across disciplines. I hope to find likeminded people that would detach creative work and cultural management from national boundaries and formal recognition and find a global, yet diversified quality of culture.

Kayla Rush, Ph.D. Candidate, Social Anthropology, Queen’s University Belfast, UK
My research examines community arts in contemporary Northern Ireland, with a focus on performance theory, sensory ethnography, and the ways in which different arts stakeholders discuss and make a case for the value of community-based and socially engaged arts practice. As many of my research participants are arts managers themselves, and as intercultural arts have recently become quite prominent in Northern Ireland, I would like to keep in touch with other academics working in these research areas.

Tatiana Stoichkova, Associate Professor, D. , Head of the Department of Advertising Design/National Academy of Arts, Sofia, Bulgaria
Networking is the natural environment for academics in a sense that this is the most appropriate way for professional communication and intercultural dialogue. One of the main reason to join ‘Brokering Intercultural Exchange’ is because the focus is on internationalization and migration in arts and art/cultural management research and education. ‘Brokering Intercultural Exchange’ could help researchers to compare and share knowledge in the field and to understand how different practices and approaches in art/cultural management function in different countries and regions. ‘Brokering Intercultural Exchange’ is an opportunity to share knowledge between professionals and academics and to promote the connections between theory – cultural, ethnic, historical studies and practical work – training, education, project developing.

I am very happy to be a part of the Brokering Intercultural Exchange network. As a museum educator, I believe in the power of the universal language of art to build bridges, understanding and relationships. The Clark is a member of FRAME (French American Museum Exchange) and as one of the education advisors and a board member of the organization, I have seen first-hand how intercultural exchange can enhance and expand how we think about our work.
