Journal of Cultural Management and Policy

With this newest issue of its online Journal of Cultural Management and Policy, ENCATC wishes once more to stimulate the debate on the topics of cultural management and cultural policy among scholars, educators, policy makers and cultural managers. The Journal is based on a multidisciplinary perspective and aims to connect theory and practice in the realm of the cultural sector and to be a platform for multidisciplinary debate and new perspectives among researchers. The Journal's publication responds to the increasing need to align education in cultural management and cultural policy with research being conducted in the field.

The newest issue is composed of five articles covering cultural management and policy issues coming from Canada, the Czech Republic, Europe, Finland and the United States. First, readers are treated to the Journal's opening debate article from Canada that questions whether sustainable development and cultural policy make for a happy marriage. The second contribution from Finland presents a case study for the inclusion of practical learning in cultural management and is followed by the third contribution from the Czech Republic that presents an interesting view of the evolving management model of Czech symphonic orchestras. Next, readers are taken to the United States for a look at how cultural education towards creative entrepreneurship has had an impact on the Native American Hopi people, who live in the arid highlands of northern Arizona. Finally, the Journal concludes with a practical look at projects as the institutional context for cultural managers based on EU funded development projects in the field of event management and an artistic project for the European Capital of Culture 2011.

With the first Journal's publication having over 24,000 downloads to date, this new issue will certainly contribute to improving the knowledge and the capabilities for crafting advanced cultural policies and cultural management systems at the European level and beyond.
