The COVID-19 pandemic has been more global in scope than any other crisis we have faced in the recent past. While arts organizations and individual artists are among the hardest hit by the economic hardship inflicted by the pandemic, the latter has placed art even more prominently at the heart of people’s lives as a coping mechanism. Data gathered from different parts of the world show an increase in art consumption, which speaks to art's power to contribute to human resilience.
The conference will approach the consequences of this crisis as an opportunity to reexamine arts managers’ responsiveness to the current situation and the way their role has been shaped by education in arts administration. The New Directions theme welcomes you to explore the changes in the field of arts administration, from the new hybrid pedagogy through experiential learning to the transition from classrooms to the arts workforce.
