We are lacking the necessary survival skills in the cultural and creative sector – a personal experience
We live in an era of radical new economic demands and environmental changes. These demands require new ways of thinking, as such cultural and creative organisations have to adjust and adapt to in order to survive.
Complete changes in patterns of community needs, audience requirements, generational and demographic changes, new forms of resource development and advancements in technology have shown that the old ways of doing things to promote organisational stability now need to be balanced by equally strong new ways of adaptability. If cultural and creative organisations are to survive they need to proactively seize opportunities for change instead of merely reacting, they need to adapt, and adapt quickly. But in order to identify opportunities they need to know what constitutes an opportunity, and critically, how you can plan, validate and implement them.
