Transfer of economic concepts to cultural strategy - and back?

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


    In the daily practice of creative and cultural organizations, we have gotten accus- tomed to using economic and managerial terms. Given that the worlds of culture and economy are seen as representing separate ‘logics’, two questions arise. Did this ‘transfer’ cause these terms to receive different connotations and meanings in the cultural and creative context? And how do the terms refer to underlying cultural and economic discourses? We will investigate this using the results of a longitudinal research performed among cultural and creative organizations in the Dutch city of Utrecht. We will draw on a theoretical approach that looks at ‘communication as constitutive’ of organizations and we will investigate how meaning making practice is related to professionalisms in the observed context.
