Perspectives on Cultural Leadership
The Fika project
Perspectives on Cultural Leadership is part of The Fika Project (thefikaproject.org) which aim is to develop a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) concept for international cultural leadership capable of meeting the demands of our complex and changing times.
Perspectives on Cultural Leadership is an anthology of research and essays. Rather than aiming to be all- encompassing, the book seeks to open up discussion by offering thought-provoking perspectives on some of the waters that cultural leaders these days are obliged to navigate.
Accompanying this book is the newly-published Narratives by Cultural Change Makers, which consists of interviews with ten prominent cultural leaders from different parts of the world. Active in different countries, in different types of organisations and with different art forms and types of culture, they tell us about life and work, education and training, professional experiences, success and setbacks, dilemmas and solutions.
Together, these two books will hopefully serve as inspiring examples and interesting perspectives for the reader to test against their own experience.
