Creative Lenses Final Conference: Culture and Business Models in Challenging Times
CREATIVE LENSES FINAL CONFERENCE:
CULTURE AND BUSINESS MODELS IN CHALLENGING TIMES
24.-25.4.2019 Pannuhalli, Kaapelitehdas
On 24-25 April 2019 leading art and cultural professionals, policymakers and researchers will meet at the Cable Factory in Helsinki to discuss business model innovation in the sector.
The two-day conference will explore how arts and cultural organisations can adapt to the changing environment and strengthen their business models accordingly. The conference will close the four-year collaboration project Creative Lenses.
The conference will include keynote speeches, workshops and panel discussions. The leader of Julie’s Bicycle Alison Tickell will give her keynote speech on Wednesday 24 April, and the artist Teemu Mäki will speak on Thursday 25 April.
The conference will explore three main themes:
- Business Model Thinking: Why are the business models of arts and cultural organisations increasingly discussed? What are the different approaches arts and cultural organisations take to thinking about or changing their business models? What are the implications of business model thinking?
- Value and Valuing: What are the different ways of understanding the value that arts and cultural organisations embody, create and realise? How do they balance conflicting missions and priorities?
- Making Sense, Impact and Research: How can arts and cultural organisations learn from, about and with their audiences and stakeholders? What are the different ways of re-imagining impact and knowledge co-creation?
Wed at 8.30am-7pm
Thu at 8.30am-6pm
Creative Lenses is a four-year (2015-2019) project that seeks to make arts and cultural organisations more resilient and sustainable by improving their business models and developing their long-term strategic and innovation capacities. creativelenses.eu
