Journal of Cultural Management and Policy
ENCATC, the European network on cultural management and cultural policy education, is pleased to announce the publication of Volume 4, Issue 1 of its online Journal of Cultural Management and Policy.
With this latest issue, ENCATC continues its commitment to stimulate the debate on the topics of cultural management and cultural policy among researchers, academics, scholars, professionals and policy makers.
“With this fourth issue we are very proud to see the ENCATC Journal continue to flourish. The increasing interest in the publication demonstrates the need to align education in cultural management and cultural policy with research being conducted in the field. Furthermore, for the long-term sustainability of the sector, this publication is a crucial tool for better anticipating the future and better understanding the past by promoting access to cutting-edge research. This important achievement was made possible thanks to the authors, editors, advisory board, and guest reviewers who are renowned experts and contributed to the success of this issue,” said GiannaLia Cogliandro Beyens, ENCATC’s General Secretary at the occasion of the launch of this new issue.
The latest issue includes seven articles covering cultural management and policy topics by authors in Belgium, China, Estonia, Portugal, Spain, Taiwan and the United States. The Journal’s opening debate article “Cultural heritage policies as a tool for development: discourse or harmony?” was written by Sigrid Van der Auwera from the University of Antwerp and ENCATC President, Annick Schramme from the University of Antwerp/Antwerp Management School in Belgium. “We would like to feed the debate on whether and to what extent these cultural heritage policies really contribute to sustainable development or whether these policies can only be classified as policy discourse,” said Annick Schramme. The other articles published in the ENCATC Journal focus on topics such as: the critical issues for research in arts management; experimental learning theory applied to the degree profiles of arts and cultural management programmes in Europe; developing intercultural awareness and communication skills in tourism education; the role of social networks in theatre’s audience behavior; the symbolic economy and creative management: cultural and creative industries urging for new approaches; and finally the promotion of digital competences for the enjoyment of culture with a look at new literacy challenges.
