We are excited to bring you the Spring 2024 issue of the International Journal of Arts Management. This issue features four academic articles examining unique topics of interest to arts management, a practitioner perspectives article, and a case study.
This issue’s Editors’ Choice article, by Shuo Gong and Hai Li, considers the challenges of team conflict among band members in the indie music industry. This is unfortunately a common occurrence in this industry and can ultimately be detrimental to the success of indie bands, as no amount of financial management or strategic decision-making can overcome contrasting passions among artists.
The remainder of our Academic Research articles addresses a variety of important topics. Marilena Vecco, Miranda Campbell, and Roberto Zanola use a unique dataset collected in Canada to document a gender pay gap among artists aged 19 and 35, a segment of creative workers who are underrepresented in research and vulnerable to structural conditions that limit their opportunities for future success. Mathilde Jost and Amélie Boutinot expand our reach to another industry that is less frequently studied in arts management research, considering the challenging dynamics of balancing individual creativity and sustainability goals among chefs in French gastronomy. Finally, Hui Zhang applies a cultural ecology perspective to a network analysis of contemporary dance with an in-depth analysis of the Beijing Dance Festival.
In our Practitioner Perspectives article, Albert Martínez-Fernández continues the important discussion of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the arts industries by incorporating a design thinking framework, and our Case Study by Danilo C. Dantas, Anita Carvalho, Veranise Jacubowski Correia Dubeux, and Bianca Mansur examines the challenges and benefits of partnerships between brands and artists through an illustration from Brazilian popular music.
With our shift to digital-only production, this was the first issue to feature advance online publications of articles prior to the release of the full issue. We hope to continue to bring you the latest in arts management research in this more efficient manner.
We look forward to meeting many of you at the AIMAC International Conference on Arts and Cultural Management June 23-26 and the second annual IJAM Paper Development Workshop June 22. See you in Lisbon!
