Dear CultureWork readers,

Welcome to the Summer 2017 issue! This issue rounds out the special series of articles in celebration of CultureWork’s 20th year as a publication.

In this issue, Antonio C. Cuyler, Assistant Professor of Arts Administration at Florida State University, invites us to join and contribute to the ongoing journey of examining and researching diversity, equity, and inclusion within the field of arts administration.  Cuyler introduces the range of his research around diversity in arts administration leadership and educational practices in the field. He further calls the field to conduct additional, purposeful research around markers of diversity such as race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic class, indigeneity, and ability–as well as questions of equity and inclusion that his research has not yet engaged. This work is necessary to examine historical and contemporary structures, forms of knowledge, and ideologies that perpetuate and change the differentials and distribution of power in society as specifically represented in the arts and culture sector. Such research further builds the opportunities, teaching practices, content areas, analytical skills, and constructive thinking that are embedded into arts administration training programs that prepare arts and cultural sector leaders.

 

Regards,

Julie Voelker-Morris

Editor
