1. Project Description

Goethe-Institut China, Institute for Arts and Media Management of Freie Universität Berlin, and Stiftung Mercator jointly organized and presented the advanced training and study program "Culture Management in China” in 2009, which aimed to further qualify young and upcoming managers for Chinese museums, theatres and dance institutions. After the great success of this training program in 2009, this project will continue with its second edition in 2010, with a wider range of fields involving cultural centres ("multiplex"), performing arts institutions, festivals, music and cultural agencies, and museums. The aim is to provide the participants with universally applicable management tools for cultural organizations as well as to enhance their understanding and capability for international exchange or coproduction projects. 2. Target Group

15 to 20 managers (not older than 40 years old), with at least 2 years of working experience in the management of cultural centres ("multiplex"), performing arts institutions, festivals, music and cultural agencies, and museums in China. 3. Organizers

Goethe-Institut China

The Goethe-Institut is the Federal Republic of Germany’s cultural institution, operating worldwide. Goethe-Institut Peking was established in 1988 as the first foreign cultural centre in the PRC. Since then, it has devoted itself to the dissemination and use of the German language in China, and has also been energetically and extensively engaged – together with its Chinese partners - in expanding SinoGerman cultural exchange and cooperation, spanning various cultural domains including music, dance, film, art, architecture, library science, and more. Freie Universität Berlin: Institute for Arts and Media Management (IKM)

The Freie Universität Berlin, founded in 1948, is a leading German research institution and was chosen as one of nine “elite” universities within the federal and state Excellence Initiative. The Institute for Arts and Media Management (IKM) was founded by Professor Siebenhaar in 1991, and merged with Freie Universität Berlin in 2004, where it is now part of the Department of Philosophy and Arts. IKM has always devoted itself to a mix of theoretical education and practical experience of culture and media management. Through a complete educational system, IKM integrates media theories, legal concepts, culture communication, economics, and science, within the practice of project management and cultural institutional management. IKM carries out its research activities on its own research facilities. The Berlin Media Professional School (BMPS) focuses on media, the Zentrum für Audience

Development (ZAD) focuses on culture management. Stiftung Mercator

Stiftung Mercator is one of Germany’s largest foundations. It initiates and funds projects that promote better educational opportunities in schools and universities. In the spirit of Gerhard Mercator, it supports initiatives that embody the idea of open- mindedness and tolerance through intercultural encounters, encouraging the sharing of knowledge and culture. The foundation provides a platform for new ideas to enable people- regardless of their national, cultural or social background- to develop their personality, become involved in society and make the most of the opportunities available to them. In this way it wants to let ideas take flight. Stiftung Mercator takes an entrepreneurial, international and professional approach to its work. 4. Project Leader
