Check out a new book by Dr. Victoria Durrer and Dr. Raphaela Henze: Managing Culture: Reflecting On Exchange In Global Times. With a focus on the fine, visual and performing arts, the book positions arts and cultural management educators and practitioners as active agents whose decisions, actions and interactions represent how we, as a society, approach, relate to, and understand ourselves and others.

We are compiling a reading list of relevant literature which will be posted here throughout the duration of the network. Specific reading suggested for each seminar is available on a separate page. Please see the drop down menu under the heading, Literature.
