Resilience Workshop

For many people working in the cultural and creative sectors, the sense of having to be ever more inventive and creative to survive uncertain times is by no means new, but updating skills, knowledge sets and approaches to adapt to new operating environments does also invariably take time.
What do you see as the main threats to your organisation’s survival, as well as the main opportunities to help it to thrive and sustain itself in the current climate? What are you doing in response?

In this workshop, we will draw on notions of resilience from diverse disciplinary perspectives to develop and share thoughts on possible responses to current challenges for arts and cultural organisations from ongoing economic, social, environmental and technological change. We will also encourage participants to engage in thinking creatively about how best to exploit their untapped and/or under the radar assets.

The workshop will be led by Dr Sara Jones (Cass Business School),Dr Canan Kocabasoglu-HillmerDr Evangelia Kalyvianaki and Rachel Driver.
