New Arts and Cultural Management Executive Course for Creative Practitioners

The internationally renowned Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries at King's College London has launched a new executive summer school programme for creative practitioners, arts and heritage managers. This intense week-long course titled New Directions in Arts and Cultural Management, will feature topical debates and practical exercises for cultural managers who are interested in moving the arts in new directions. The programme will cover key issues and barriers facing tomorrow's cultural managers, including the latest knowledge and debate from academic research in the field, and carefully chosen practical case studies from leading arts directors.

The summer school, which will run from 30 June to 4 July at Somerset House in central London, will explore themes such as innovation in audience development, new fundraising strategies and approaches to mapping and measuring culture. As well as providing a unique learning opportunity for arts managers looking to develop their knowledge in this field, the course will also serve as a platform for arts professionals to network with leading experts. Dr Roberta Comunian, programme leader, explained 'this course represents a unique opportunity for professionals in the world of arts, heritage and culture to critically think and discuss future directions and trajectories in their field. Learning will be supported by experts in the sector, enhanced by the opportunities offered by London international leadership in this field and consolidated through the establishment of a strong peer-to-peer network'.
