In my pre-seminar commentary I wanted you to ask what is that you want to solve and in turn what is it that you want to change? During the Emerging Business Models For The Built Environment seminar the speakers emphasized this very question and gave a few tips on how to start tackling the change process within your organisation.
Speaker presentations from Seminar 4 are now live. You can also view presentations from past Digital Capacity events here. If you were unable to attend or just need a recap audio and video from Seminar 4 will also be available here from 23 March.
New Art Exchange, in collaboration with technology providers Artfinder, have opened registration for the online Culture Cloud competition. UK- based artists can enter the competition by uploading two dimensional artworks to the project website before 4 May 2012.
Arts organisations today are faced with the unique challenge of managing expectations from both sides of the business: on the supply side there are private sponsors, individual donors and governments who provide funding and set targets for return on investment, and on the demand side there are consumers who are increasingly asking for more from the price of their ticket.
Art and commerce once existed neatly in separate universes. Besides the artistic flourish designers like Paul Rand brought to the occasional product or logo or advertising campaign, there wasn't much art to speak of in the corporate world. And in the rarefied and sometimes hermetic world of fine art, there was no heretic greater than the sellout.
