Abstract

Managers in a growing number of organizations are moving beyond arm's length relationships with the arts and seeking ways of engaging in mutual learning with artists over the course of months or even years. This article describes and compares seven artistic intervention residency programs in five European countries, showing commonalities and differences in their structures, objectives, funding arrangements and implementation processes, and illustrating diverse ways of documenting the "values-added" from such interventions. It breaks new ground by analyzing the manifold functions that intermediaries fulfil to bridge across the cultural divide that separates the world of the arts and the world of organizations.
