The purpose of this book is to support academics and practitioners involved in cultural organisations and cultural initiatives in their aim to create valuable societal impact by addressing these fundamental questions: What are the major challenges and transitions for cultural organisations? What role can cultural heritage play in contemporary societies? And what societal changes impact the relevance of culture and the arts in general? Organisational and societal change require a solid base of knowledge and experience, as well as their continuous reinterpretation and reflection. Arts and cultural artefacts highlight fundamental questions of economic and social developments and provide reflective platforms for societal discourses. The contributions of this book will address the relevance of culture, cultural entities and heritage as collective memories and reservoirs of experience for other social systems, change and societal innovators like entrepreneurs. Insofar, cultural activities can be understood as a bridge between past experience and future challenges. A special focus is dedicated to managerial practices, participation and entrepreneurship, as well as their inter-relations.
