arts management network
an interview with dirk heinze & peggy molloy 

MOLLOY: After receiving your newsletter for several years, I would like to ask you where your firm "Arts Management Network" is located?

HEINZE: We are located in Weimar, Germany. Our company was founded in 2002/2003.

MOLLOY: What is your company's story? (Http://

HEINZE: Our company would not exist without the Internet. Our services are all designed to function online.

MOLLOY:  What are the basics?

HEINZE: We have three basic services on a subscription basis, online advertising, or digital journalism at two electronic magazines and two websites.

MOLLOY: What has been the most significant trend you have witnessed?

HEINZE: The most significant trend is the recent shift from one-way-communication to prosumption with the Web 2.0.

MOLLOY: Please explain.

HEINZE: The users themselves create content, and as we do the same, the result of sharing this content permanently at a global stage, is the added value of an online community.  

MOLLOY: May I have an example?

HEINZE: We had a cultural management conference in Berlin. Academics, industry, society and
politics fuse together with new trends with new stakeholders in the process.

MOLLOY: I noticed another notice from an organization called MUSIC CHINA.  It appears you have arts-related news from the entire globe. The article states that Music China is Asia Pacific's leading music event. 

There are many different notes to choose from including an article about THE RESOURCE ALLIANCE, which is an international fundraising congress. Editing has become a clearer discipline for anyone putting out information.

As an observer, it appears that most editors and web mavens believe that they are in a fast forward mode and everything and everyone needs to catch up to them, it is possible that the digital trend-setters are just now able to catch up to our ancient global language that the visual and performing arts represent.

John Naisbitt, author of MEGATRENDS has a new book out titled HIGH TECH HIGH TOUCH.
For those of us who believe in a spiritual knowledge based upon universal principles of sacred and ethical living, Naisbitt's examination of the fabulous and the devastating are perched within the framework of contemporary technology. Again, religious people have been aware of a higher order for centuries, to be understood by technocrats in their terms,... is what makes this news.
