About Arts & Cultural Management Conference

Building an understanding of the ongoing transformations in the arts and culture sector will allow us to better advocate for its contributions to society as well as self-reflecting on how to best serve our communities while navigating uncertainty & change. Therefore, the 2021 edition of ACMC is taking a critical look at its own format and thematic scope by delving deeper into virtual realms and expanding the borders of the event’s audience reach and engagement in topical conversations.

ACMC provides an accessible platform for disseminating research and projects while fostering an open, interactive, and mindful exchange. Every year since 2018, this three-day event has been engaging over 100 emerging researchers, professionals, academics, and artists across Europe in insightful conversations about on the most pressing issues of the arts & cultural sector.
