The key goal of the Boosting Resilience: Survival Skills for the New Normal programme is to inspire and support the development of new approaches to Making the most of Creative Assets and Intellectual Property in the arts and cultural sector.
The programme is working with a cohort of 27 participants from a diverse range of organisations across England. In its design and strategy, it takes into consideration and builds out from both established and emerging research and sector led thinking on resilience, aiming to create a practical, user-centred programme that also pushes conceptual thinking around creative assets - and indeed creative ecologies more widely - to new limits.
The programme sets out to develop new thinking and approaches to help participants to: recognise and seize opportunity, deploy resources more strategically and imaginatively and identify and mitigate risk.
Throughout it will focus on developing organisations’ thinking on their creative assets, their existing and potential intellectual property and their abilities to maximize these through working with wider sectors e.g health, education and technology.
The longer-term aim is that the programme will benefit the wider sector as well as the core participants, creating materials and methods to anticipate and withstand economic, social, environmental and technological change.
A final showcase event will take place in March 2019.
