Event description

What’s next for the arts to survive and thrive?

COVID-19 has kept us indoors and has had a devastating effect on the music and arts industries. Join WOMAD co-founder, legendary Glastonbury booker and the Foundation’s very first Thinker in Residence (2013), Martin Elbourne as we discuss the social, cultural, political, industrial and economic impacts of the pandemic on our live music and arts industry. We'll ask; what's next for the industry?

Martin will be joined by leading South Australian arts experts, as they bring their local expertise to the virtual stage. How can we work with communities to build new environments in which arts can thrive and be sustained? Book your tickets to find out!
