Managing culture and the arts in Ireland

May 24, 2008

University College Dublin’s School of Art History and Cultural Policy is holding a conference on Ireland’s arts and cultural management sector which will take place on UCD’s campus on 11-12 July 2008 (Friday & Saturday). The conference is entitled ‘How are we doing? Managing culture and the arts in Ireland’.

How Are We Doing? Managing Culture and the Arts in Ireland, 2008 is a practitioner-focused forum aimed at giving cultural sector managers, collectively and personally, an opportunity to take stock of their work in the wider context of policy and practice. The conference will enable practitioners to reflect on their management environment, as well as the skills, training and lifestyle issues that affect arts and cultural managers in contemporary Ireland. Sessions include presentations and keynote addresses by internationally renowned scholars and arts managers, and opportunities to meet and network with colleagues in the field.

There is a conference blog here in which you can have your say about the current issues affecting the arts in Ireland and the organisers plan to disseminate the content an follow up via the blog after the proceedings.
