The 21st century is posing new challenges and creating new opportunities for the creative and cultural sector, asking new demands from its leadership.
The increasingly complex environment in which we work is fluid and uncertain with new ethical, economic, social, environmental, political and creative considerations, all of which demand that leaders re-think how they address questions such as: how can artists and arts organizations reconcile differing views of free speech and offence? What are the new economic models that create less dependency on public funds? How can we ensure that work is seen by, and speaks to the concerns of, the less privileged in society? How can the imperatives of climate change be balanced with the need to distribute (tour) work widely? How can we make the case for the arts in the face of political apathy or antagonism? How can we develop and engage with forms of cultural expression that may not yet exist?
These questions require arts leaders – both within and outside institutions - to re-imagine the future and the way they work. This online workshop explores strategies to address today’s challenges, drawing on case studies which demonstrate bestpracticeand examining ways in which resilient leaders can be developed and supported.
This workshop is designed to fill the gap between a typical short webinar and a longer online course. Each workshop is led by an international expert, combines lectures and small group discussion, and meets online for two (2) hours, once a week for three weeks. There is also an online discussion board for sharing information and group discussion during the three weeks. There is no grading.
