The arts and cultural sector and in particular, the creative industries, are growing in Europe and in other western countries, as well as in Asia, with 100 arts management courses in China alone. They have become one of the most important and innovative economic sectors, investigated from Florida’s US-centric position to Howkins Euro-centric view. In addition, a scientific focus on entrepreneurship and management in the creative arts seems necessary – for e.g. human resource management or governance issues. The track Cultural Entrepreneurship and Arts Management focuses on research and innovative management practices in the two interwoven areas of arts management and cultural entrepreneurship, linking the scientific and scholarly interests of the two strands of management research. In this context, the topics of key antecedents, effects and specifics of cultural entrepreneurship need to be explored from a theoretical perspective as well as in practice. Furthermore, a selection of papers is planned to be published in a special issue “Cultural Entrepreneurship and the New Arts Management” of International Journal of Arts Management (IJAM).
You are cordially invited to submit or recommend papers to the Track „Cultural Entrepreneurship and Arts Management“ (Entrepreneurship SIG) for the 16th EURAM conference that will take place in Paris (France) between the 1st and the 4th of June 2016, at Université Paris –Est Créteil (UPEC). Submission Deadline: January 12, 2016 (Call for Papers)
