Program director Dr. Richard Maloney was elected for a second term to the Board of Directors of ENCATC, the European network on cultural management and policy. Dr. Maloney is the only non-European elected to the board in the group's 27-year history.
The new ENCATC board is composed of cultural management scholars from six colleges and universities (Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States), and the executive director of a cultural foundation in Croatia.
At its first meeting, which took place on January 24-25, 2020, in Brussels, the board defined its goals for the next two years: advocate for excellence in cultural management and cultural policy education, professionalize the cultural sector to make it sustainable, and provide the academic, research, and professional communities a unique platform for discussion and exchange at the European and international levels.
ENCATC works in partnership with the European Union and UNESCO, with a mission to stimulate the development of cultural management and cultural policy education in Europe and beyond, engaging and responding to new developments in politics, economics, societies, and technology.
