The state of the sector: arts, audiences and digital, post lockdown

October 14, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

While the future for arts and culture was still not clear, The Space team, in association with Arts Council England, invited you to join other arts practitioners to share learnings and observations and to discuss some of the questions which are core to the sustainability of the sector.


We covered:

  • What are the challenges in distributing arts and culture digitally, and how might we meet those?
  • With digital as an established home for arts and culture, what opportunities are emerging?
  • How can we create experiences that cut through to audiences?
  • What are realistic and viable ambitions?
