Seminar: The Current Issues in Arts Management

Speaker: Esra A. Aysun

Time: 18:00-19:30

In this module, Aysun will open the concept of “art management”, which is accused of instilling business culture and instrumentalizing art by imposing conflict and paradox, into discussion within the framework of today's practices with cultural diversity, inclusivity, and sustainability.
