Organisational practice, symbolism & imagination
Marcin Poprawski (Lecturer, Humak University of Applied Sciences, PhD).
The workshop will focus on practical exercises that are designed as an extension of the notion of organisational symbolism by Antonio Strati and Silvia Gherardi, organisation sociologists. Symbolic approach to organisational cultures is characterized by special attention to organizational processes and to the intentions and values of participants in organizational life. Moreover the organisational culture (and its symbolic component) is the central area for understanding the specificity of creative, culture and art organisations that employ artists and creators. It is perceived as a condition impacting or controlling the relations of organisations’ members both inside and outside. These aspects will be addressed through the workshop meeting that is structured as a three part format with the introduction provided by the facilitator, group work and the summary.
The territory of Marcin Poprawski´s research and teaching activities belong to the shared land of the arts, culture and organisation. Main areas are cultural management, cultural policies, audience engagement, local cultural ecosystems, music festivals, management & aesthetics and the art & culture organisations. Recent projects Marcin was and are involved: a) CONNECT. Connecting Audiences in Europe (University of Deusto consortium); b) Festivalisation of values. Axionormative dimensions of music festivals. (AMU University Poznan), c) SMUP – Culture & Public Service Monitoring System (Association of Polish Cities & National Statistics Office)
