International Workshop about “Cultural Festivals’ Organization and Management: new Challenges in the Digital Age?” Nov 26th. Call for abstracts - 09 Septembre 2019 - University of Valencia, Spain

Prof Elisa Salvador, Elena Castro-Martínez (INGENIO-CSIC, UPV), Ana Botella Nicolás and Rosa Isusi Fagoaga (University of Valencia) organize an international Workshop about “Cultural Festivals’ Organization and Management: new Challenges in the Digital Age?” on November 26th, 2019 at the University of Valencia, Spain.

The workshop is organized under the label of the International Association of Arts and Cultural Management (AIMAC) and it will be followed by a Special Issue by the International Journal of Arts Management (IJAM).

There is no fee for researchers attending the Workshop. Speakers having sent a full version of the paper they will present at the Workshop will benefit from free accommodation (1 or 2 nights) and conference expenses (coffee breaks and meals) will be fully covered by the organizers.

The aim of this international Workshop and the subsequent Special Issue is precisely to investigate the actual context of Festivals’ structure, organization and management, also considering the actual challenges of the digital age. Cross comparisons between Festivals taking place in different countries will be welcome. They are expected to consider the place, the structural organization and the impact of some selected Festivals organized in small or large cities.

The Workshop will be followed the day after (27th November 2019) by an all-day meeting about “Educational programs and cultural Festivals: new approaches and new audiences” (in Spanish language). This 2° day will involve organizers with expertise in cultural events, policymakers, persons in charge of educational programs during Festivals, and other interested social stakeholders.
