Sustainability

How to make a living as an artist? How to survive as an arts organisation?

As we continue struggle out of the crisis, we must give ourselves a chance; not for survival, but for success.  

To start with, let's reassess our professional strategies and business models. How do we use our potential and our resources? How do we contribute to the sustainability of the environment we work and live in? What does sustainability in the arts mean and how to achieve it? And what role can the arts play in that wider issue: helping to save the planet, the environment we live and work in?

The Evaluation Journey: A Toolkit for Cultural Operators
Elena DI FEDERICO
As the title of this toolkit suggests, evaluation should indeed be understood as a journey. It gains relevance when it is integrated in and informs regular work, rather than seen as a separate chap- ter, done for extrinsic purposes. Evaluation also becomes more useful when performed as an iter- ative process, which allows for long-term learning.
