In the midst of the pandemic, there is a new urgency to the challenges facing the arts. David Maggs, artist, author, artistic director, academic, and broad-spectrum thinker recently published an article with The Philanthropist talking about just this. In the face of COVID-19, Maggs challenges us to see opportunity within the damage – to put aside nostalgia for what is lost for excitement at what might be gained by art and artists finding new ways to connect their vital gifts and contributions to some of our transformed world’s most pressing needs.
Throughout the article he explores seven questions that the arts sector might consider in order to stand tall in the public imaginations of tomorrow.
