Perspectives on Practice
In keeping with the general editorial policy, IJAMCP provides space for showcasing current practice in arts and heritage management, cultural policy and relevant dimensions of all forms of creative and cultural practice. This is principally done through authored observations from practitioners; evaluative case studies and edited practitioner interviews. Consequently, almost all published work in this section is authored by arts managers, artists, policymakers and not academics.
