The Boekmanstudies in Amsterdam has recently launched the book State on Stage. The impact of public policies on the performing arts in Europe. Edited by Ineke van Hamersveld and Cas Smithuijsen, this publication offers both a pan-European overview and national portraits of 15 EU member states, depicting a lively, dynamic performing arts scene. It also reveals what’s happening behind the scenes – oversupply, with thousands of performing artists unable to find proper jobs, seeking additional income elsewhere. Despite the generosity of governments at all levels, public money comes either in insufficient quantities, or is spent inefficiently.
