Meeting (online) an amazing group of skillful and professional young arts managers and artists is so recharging! We started the module on Economy of Culture in a very interactive way, discussing issues in cultural economics, creative economy, economic arguments for state suport for culture, strategic dilemmas in cultural policy making, and much more!
The MA in Cultural Policy and Cultural Management is a two-year program, hosted by the Faculty of Literature and Humanities, Ben M’sik, at the Hassan II University in Casablanca, Morocco. It aims to develop a new generation of researchers, cultural managers, policy makers, and academics capable of contributing to cultural practices in their countries and in the Arab region, and working with a strategic approach in the public cultural sector, creative industries, and the independent non-profit cultural sector locally and internationally.
The program courses are drawn from two fields of knowledge: cultural policies and cultural management. The content of these courses cover academic skills, such as academic research and writing methodologies; cultural policies topics, such as cultural policy models, cultural policies writing, cultural trends in the Arab region, and cultural legislations; cultural management topics include cultural mediation, audience building, human resources management in cultural institutions, strategic planning, cultural economy and marketing, cultural projects design and implementation.
Culture Resource established this program with Hassan II University, the University of Hildesheim in Germany and its UNESCO Chair for Cultural Policies for Arts in Development and the Moroccan Agency for International Cooperation as cooperating partners.
