From Maestro to Manager Summary

From Maestro to Manager: Critical Issues in Arts and Culture Management by Edited by Marian Fitzgibbon

This is a look at the critical issues involved in the area of arts and culture management in a European context. Including contributions from practitioners and academics in Ireland, the UK, Spain, Denmark and elsewhere, the study highlights the increasing pressure on arts and cultural practitioners for increasing effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and accountability against a backdrop of financial constraints. Many of the chapters reflect the often suspicious and even hostile reaction of the people in "the arts" to the strictures of "management", yet there is the realization that their organizations must be run professionally and cost-effectively.
