1. National Arts Marketing Conference

The Arts & Business Council Inc. presents, under the aegis of their American
Express National Arts Marketing Project, and in partnership with the arts
marketing journal Arts Reach, the first ever national arts marketing
conference. The conference, entitled "Hitting a Vein: Strike Gold With
Sponsorship and Marketing Strategies that Work" will take place in San
Francisco, from October 27th to 30th, 2001. The program includes a one day
intensive Arts Sponsorship Summit, followed by the 2 1/2 day National Arts
Marketing Conference, filled with keynotes and valuable workshops.  Powerful
peer-to-peer learning and networking is expected, in addition to the formal
education. The National Arts Marketing project has, over the past three
years, trained thousands of arts managers around the country, and many of
the sessions at the conference will draw on success stories and trainers
identified through this program.

2. Review: Summer Academy at ICCM in Salzburg

For the past 10 years, the European Summer Academy in Salzburg has attracted
culture managers, primarily from Central and Eastern Europe, but also from
Western Europe, Palestine, South Africa, India and the United States. In
celebration of its tenth anniversary, the Summer Academy in Salzburg has
been reorganized to include New Media and a true international and
trans-cultural concept.
Arts Management Network has got to learn a motivated team of lecturers and
participants, which has been especially improved the development in the arts
of East-European countries.

discussions has covered three main topics: Marketing; Management,
Organisational Behaviour and Strategy; and Cultural Policy. The Association
