Creating a community of young professionals in the arts, establishing new connections, creating stimulating debates about cultural industry issues, learning and sharing best practices: that is the purpose of the ACKnowledge Network.


The network was founded by the SDA Bocconi’s Arts & Culture Knowledge Center, in collaboration with a group of former Bocconi arts management graduates.


On May 25th, the ACKnowledge network had its kick-off meeting, which hosted Gabriel Zuchtriegel, Director of the Archaeological Site of Pompeii as a keynote speaker on the topic “Working In The Arts. Why It Still Matters, How It Is Changing”.


The network is currently including over 100 young art practitioners who are former MAMA, MMIAM (Master in International Arts Management) and ACME (Economics and Management in Arts, Culture, Media and Entertainment) students, with the long-term goal of welcoming participants from other programs as well. The final aim is twofold: serving as a platform to generate connections among Bocconi graduates in the arts management field and promoting fruitful debates around issues and challenges in the arts. All this will be possible through the organization of meetings and training sessions dedicated to the participants.


Stay tuned for the upcoming initiatives!
