In the midst of a career as manager in the arts and in education, I embarked on a PhD project in the field of Arts Management. I defended my thesis in December 2012 and have since then been engaged with teaching and developing different courses and programs in the field of Arts Management and Cultural Entrepreneurship. I’m particularly interested in processes aimed at changing and reinventing cultural institutions and policies in order to bring about cultural democracy.
