Jürg W. Leipziger liefert glasklare Trockenübungen für das konzeptionelle Denken. Lesen!

Nachhaltige Entwicklung in Kulturmanagement und by Patrick S. Föhl,Patrick Glogner-Pilz,Markus Lutz,Yvonne

By Patrick S. Föhl,Patrick Glogner-Pilz,Markus Lutz,Yvonne Pröbstle

„Grundorientierung Zukunft“ lautet das Leitbild des Sammelbandes, der sich mit dem Thema der nachhaltigen Entwicklung in Kulturmanagement und Kulturpolitik auseinandersetzt. Ausgangspunkt ist die Beobachtung, dass die „Nachhaltigkeitsdiskussion“ – obgleich in vielen gesellschaftlichen Bereichen schon eine Selbstverständlichkeit – für den Kulturbetrieb erst noch entdeckt werden muss. Dementsprechend widmen sich die Herausgeber und Autoren zunächst den theoretischen Grundlagen des Begriffs „Nachhaltigkeit“ und seiner Relevanz in kulturmanagerialen und kulturpolitischen Kontexten. Darauf aufbauend werden strategische Perspektiven für eine nachhaltige Entwicklung des Kulturbetriebs anhand ausgewählter Bereiche – wie zum Beispiel Besucherorientierung, Kulturfinanzierung und assessment – aufgezeigt und diskutiert.
