Handbook of Cultural and Heritage Management
2. Chapter 1 - BASIC PERCEPTS OF CULTURAL AND HERITAGE MANAGEMENT
2.1. What is Cultural Management?
management is the efficient administration and enhancement of cultural
organizations, entities and projects. Along with cultural policies, these
notions emerged due to the increasing impact of economy on all aspects of life
(hence also on culture) in the post-world war II period and particularly within
the past few decades. Both creative arts and heritage can fall under this
general umbrella-notion. For the purposes of the DEN CuPID project we will
focus primarily on the heritage aspects, always in their cultural dimension,
and on the common precepts transcending management of both, such as efficiency,
sustainability, skills, specialization, budgeting etc.
