What is Resilience anyway? report is commissioned by Arts Council England, explores how the frequently used term ‘resilience’ has been understood in the arts and culture sector in the UK. The report is based on literature and extensive qualitative and qualitative research. It embraces a perspective for a long-term resilience of the arts and cultural sector, which requires adaptability to embrace innovation, the willingness and ability to accept risk and to see failure (whether of projects or organisations) as a natural part of a vibrant ecosystem, and suggests a future in which arts and culture can flourish and thrive, rather than simply survive.
