Cultural Resilience: Using Innovation to Stabilize in Times of Crisis

This summer, we asked you to tell us how your organization changed things up during the pandemic to keep your art on offer, to maintain revenue and audiences, or to find new audiences. We collected over 200 stories from across the country!

The stories collected from across Canada will illustrate strategic uses of technology as well as innovation, experimentation, and the development of new approaches in retaining audiences and marketing to new ones. The stories will be used as the foundation for creating professional development deliverables for the Canadian culture community.

The data will be invaluable for every level of government looking to develop programs and policy that supports innovation in the cultural sector.

A report on the findings of Phase One will be delivered in the fall of 2021. In Phase Two, new professional development tools for cultural and creative industries will be created in collaboration with CHRC and LAV and distributed in English and French to arts and culture leadership throughout Canada.
