Federal Arts Policy 1957 – 2014. The Rhetoric & The Reality
Duncan Low

This dissertation is concerned with the question: what evidence exists to support the claim that 21st century Canadian arts policy is delivering the support necessary to maintain and build avigorous and sustainable professional arts sector?

“Sticking a name on something”: Resolving the Conceptual Ambiguity of Audience Development
Steven Hadley

Audience Development embodies the aspiration of cultural policy to deliver a different material reality in the consumption of the publicly funded arts. Such a moral imperative is implicit in any system of public cultural subsidy operating in a modern liberal democracy. This paper provides an understanding of how the conceptually ambiguous term of Audience Development became a normative practice in the cultural sector.

Towards constructing Asian model of arts support –– Comparative study of arts support system with a focus on non-institutional actors
Mio Yachita

When a country tries to form a new cultural policy, or to construct a system to support arts, we often compare the strategies of other countries. When the arts management was first introduced to higher education in Japan in the 1990s, numbers of comparative studies has been made with western countries such as the United Sates, Europe and Australia. Almost three decades later, arts managers in Japan are now looking towards Asia. Dynamic and rapid growth of China and South Korea goes without saying: years of exchange contributed not only to the academic studies, but to the creation itself while building networks of experts.
