well these questions sound familiar! “What can we do to stabilize funding for the arts? Can we learn from other countries’ examples?”
any thoughts on these contributors’ various takes?
Dan - Some new and some old ideas in this debate. For me, crowd funding offers the most significant shift in how cultural projects can be seed funded in the future. Crowd funding sidesteps the policy makers and gives individuals a hands on ownership of the culture they build. Add in a more commercially robust approach to commercially structured projects and we could almost have a sustainable and engaged model.
