This edited book is the outcome of our first Master of Arts in Cultural Management (MACM) Alumni Symposium, which was held on 31st March and 1st April 2023. The symposium was co-organized by the MACM Programme and the Centre for Cultural Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), with the support from the CUHK Library and the MACM Alumni Association (AACM). Over two days, MACM graduates share critical reflections and insights based on their first-hand experience as practitioners and/or researchers, discussing and reflecting on the dynamics and evolving roles of cultural managers in today’s context.

A total of 30 alumni presented in the symposium, of whom 26 presented papers and four others joined in a roundtable discussion. The diversity of the papers and discussions led to a rich exchange of ideas, emphasizing the transformative roles of cultural managers as intermediaries who navigate and shape the complex interplay between cultural identities, social dynamics, professional ethics, and power relations. This book documents the critical reflections, theoretical insights, and practical knowledge shared during the symposium.
