Behind the Scenes
Cultural entrepreneurship in developing countries
This book aims to contribute to a better understanding of cultural entrepreneurship in Africa, Latin America and Asia and the context that cultural organisations are working in. The Dutch cultural development organization Theatre Embassy initiated the underlying research after more than 10 years of experience in this field. The subjects of the research were three of its partner organizations in developing countries: K-Mu Thť‚tre (DR Congo), Arte Acciůn (Honduras) and Kelola (Indonesia).
Based on field research, interviews and available literature the three case studies are intertwined through an approach of cultural dimensions - each dimension as a separate chapter. These are: Cultural context, Internal organization, Cultural credit, Sources of income, Networks, Cultural innovations, Art policy and common interest.
The research provides new information and insights to others working in the field of culture and development. This makes the book interesting for other cultural organisations in developing countries, cultural policymakers, international donor agencies and NGOs, as well as for artists, cultural managers, tutors, students and researchers in the field of art management and cultural entrepreneurship.
With a preface by Giep Hagoort, professor art and economics at Utrecht University and the Utrecht School of Arts.
