These are of course uncertain and challenging times and our industry has been particularly hard hit – our thoughts are with all colleagues grappling with closures and cancellations. If we can help – especially if you need evidence or support with contingency planning, do let us know. We’re working with fellow agencies and the Arts Councils of England and Wales, as well as Creative Scotland, to develop relevant joined up sector support and will keep you abreast of developments there.
Culture in the time of Corona will be our resource hub for this period, collating an evolving range of articles, guidelines, updates and opportunities that we hope might offer not only insight and interest, but some sense of productivity and agency as we adjust to a new normal.
We believe that our decades of expertise in audience-centred ways of working are more relevant now than ever as creators and facilitators strive to retain audience engagement during lockdown – it is not about replacing the in-person experience but opening up new possibilities for collaboration, learning and engagement. We'll focus as well on evidence-based mid to long-term planning that organisations and individuals in the sector can begin engaging with, now and in the coming weeks of uncertainty, to underpin thinking about how to 'bounce forwards' once the immediate crisis subsides.
