ArtsFwd is Two Years Old! What’s Next?

The Activating Innovation & ArtsFwd Two Year Report is a look back at what we’ve done, who has participated, and what we’ve learned.

We’re excited to share our Activating Innovation & ArtsFwd Two Year Report!

The report is a snapshot of our content, our community, and our learning since EmcArts launched ArtsFwd.org and the Activating Innovation initiative in November 2011.

Background

Over the last two years, we’ve been working to move the dialogue about innovation from the margins towards the center of our field. It’s our belief that doing so will contribute to a resilient arts sector that brings value to our lives and communities.

What began in 2011 as simply ArtsFwd.org, a website that would serve as a hub for information and resources about innovation in the arts, grew into a larger initiative we call Activating Innovation.

The Activating Innovation & ArtsFwd Two Year Report is a look back at what we’ve done, who has participated, what we’ve learned through prototyping, as well as a preview of our questioning as we head into the next year.

Overall, these first two years have been a time of experimentation, learning and growth. We’re thankful for everyone who has contributed to, responded to, or shared something from this project.

As our next steps come into focus over the next several months, we look forward to sharing them with you on the ArtsFwd blog.

Best wishes in 2014!
