As our cultural expression evolves, there is a need to re-look at some of the fundamental assumptions regarding how the arts are supported and sustained in Canada. New technologies, changing demographics, global interconnectedness, and the evolving nature of public engagement in the arts have transformed the industry. Consequently, the working practice of the emerging generation is increasingly misaligned with current arts funding policies.
Grounded in both theory and practice, Choreographing our Future offers insight into how the arts industry could inspire and support a new, exciting era of arts development in Canada. It offers a lens through which to view arts development that brings into focus what professional artists need in order to create innovative content, to connect meaningfully with audiences, and to develop effective resourcing strategies. It invites practitioners and funders alike to embrace change with courage, curiosity, and imagination.
