Brokering Intercultural Exchange Network (co-founder). Co-founder of this network, which was initiated through an Arts and Humanities Research Council Research Network Grant awarded to Victoria Durrer from Queen’s University Belfast, UK and Raphaela Henze from Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences, Germany. It seeks to understand the role of arts and cultural managers as intercultural brokers in our context of globalisation, internationalisation and global migration. Intercultural understanding suggests capacity for appreciating, recognising and relating to different world viewpoints and experiences. Historical and empirical research recognises the role arts and cultural objects and expressions, like fine and performing arts and heritage, play in political, cultural and ethnic relations. Yet, little is known about the role of arts and cultural managers, their practice and education, in this process.
