Eventide Conversations: Arts Advocacy – We are Essential

20 Apr 2021

Arts Advocacy in the New Normal? In the current phase of recovery, how do arts organisations continue to demonstrate and communicate value to their government, professional communities and audiences? How have their underpinning principles informed organisational changes to build medium – long term sustainability across sectors? What are the new and emerging challenges and what has proven to be effective? What could be the shared concepts and frameworks across cultures?​
