TALKS & SEMINARS
20 July to 11 September
An urgent programme to reimagine the future of arts and culture
“ARTS AND CULTURE ARE SELF-ORGANISING FOR SURVIVAL RIGHT NOW.
But what are we fighting for? A return to how things were or a fundamental reset?
CULTURE RESET is a practical rapid response programme to inspire more relevant and impactful cultural organisations and practices.
Born out of the devastating impact of Covid-19 and inspired by the urgent need to accelerate change and respond to the experiences of a broader diversity of people, it will provide expert support and dynamic stimulus for 192 arts and cultural producers, makers and directors across the UK.
Applications are NOW CLOSED.
The programme runs 20 July to 11 September 2020.
