Don’t Panic! Arts in Austerity

Lois Keidan from the Live Art Development Agency is speaking at the Third Ear Symposium as part of a panel on 'Perspectives from the grass roots'. 

The symposium presents an international line-up of music promoters, programmers, producers, curators, funders, artists and composers join together for a day of talks and discussions to consider the culture of the arts in a time of austerity.

Artists and arts organisations are adapting to a present (and possible future) economy in which income and other resources are ever scarcer. But how are these changes to the financial economy affecting the social ecology of the arts, and what good examples can we learn from?

This symposium will look at emerging trends – and responses to these trends – in the changing relationships: between arts organisations, artists and volunteers; presenting organisations and their audiences; and between established and countercultural movements in the arts.
