Centering Artists in the Arts Ecology

July 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Bringing artists and arts workers together in a digital and generative space, join us in both a discussion, and an exploratory process.

Artists are the key component of the Arts sector, however they have an external relationship with key decision making processes impacting their careers. They depend on funding, presenters, galleries, other organizations etc. who, at times, focus more on artistic output (performance, showing) than input (support, artistic process, studio access).

Bringing artists and arts workers together in a digital and generative way, the session will join us in both a discussion, and an exploratory process animated by digital tools such as Jamboard. We aspire to have a collective visioning that aspires to elicit change to the arts sector together.

Facilitated by Ella Cooper.

– How different would the arts sector work if artists were realigned to the centre of the Arts

– Ecology? In what ways do artists inject life into the sector?

– How does an artist centred vision co-create a different perspective to funding that differs from the current model?

– In what ways can we ensure that an artist centered vision is not limited by the current cultural narrative but grounded in the values for funding we are aspiring to?

– How do we arrive at a new place of creative emergence shifting the artists from the periphery to the centre.

– What could be involved in this shift?

Accessibility: this session will be via Zoom and will have Otter.ai live transcribe available.
