The International Arts Professionals Summer School, to take place in Brussels, Belgium July 18 to 22, 2011, is an intensive week of learning for creative practitioners, arts managers, and cultural project coordinators interested in engaging with the current debates and research in visual and performing arts management. It is organized by the University of Kent School of Arts in partnership with ENCATC (the European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centers) and will be hosted at the University of Kent in Brussels.
The Summer School will include contributions from leading international experts and cultural leaders from the U.K. and Europe. It will be based on a mix of lectures, presentations, workshops, and practical exercises delivered by both academics and international experts. Key themes that will be explored during the Summer School are public and private investment in the arts: from national trends to organizational strategies, leadership in arts and cultural organizations, individual giving to the arts: new fundraising frontiers, and innovation in audience development and engagement.
