Anch'io ho inizialmente optato per "Cultural and Performing Arts", successivamente mi è venuto il dubbio che si potesse tradurre anche con "entertainment". Comunque in questi gg mi è capitato di leggere numerose traduzioni it-en del Comune di Milano e in tutte "Settore cultura spettacolo" è tradotto con "Culture and Performing Arts Department".
Merci beaucoup!!!

Explanation:
"Ente" is either a body, a commission or a board but in this context I would use "association".

Buon lavoro,

Piccolo dubbio


Explanation:
a proposito di Performing Arts,che e' riferito ad "arte colta":Teatro,danza,musica.Spettacolo e' molto generale e comprende televisione sport circo etc.Ho trovato un sito inglese dell'enpals(ente nazionale per la previdenza a assistenza dei lavoratori dello spettacolo)che traduce spettacolo con entertainment.Lina.

Explanation:
I had thought of "entertainment" too but as it's paired with culture I opted to back "performing arts".
It's just a question of how it sounds -
"culture and entertainment" OR "culture and performing arts".

performing, performers


Explanation:
Il dubbio e' legittimo.
Vedi ad esempio come Eurodicautom traduce spettacolo in questo nome proprio (secondo me impropriamente pero')
European Committee of Trade Unions in Arts,Mass Media and Entertainment

Ho controllato su Eurolex (che mi sembra a volte molto piu' affidabile di Eurodicautom) e artisti dello spettacolo e spettacolo e' generalmente tradotto performing arts, performers, performing artists
vedi
http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/it/lif/dat/1991/it_491Y0719_02....

Bisogna tenere conto che Milano e' un grosso centro di performing arts (penso alla Scala e al Piccolo, ad esempio) e non tradurrei quindi "entertainment".
Forse perche' in ambiente nordamericano entertainment, entertainer mi fa pensare di piu' alla televisione, agli spettacoli di varieta'.

Saluti a tutti
