On Thursday I was at Toynbee Hall in London to take part in the re.volution provocation event ‘How Can We Be Sure That We Continue To Take Risks In Times Of Adversity?’ re.volution is a peer learning network designed for the leaders of micro, small and medium sized arts and cultural organisations, organised by Mission Models Money. Thursday’s provocation event looked in detail at the subject of risk. We reflected on the differences between artistic risk, producer risk and institutional risk. We looked at the role of Boards in relation to managing risk: I liked the suggestion that the role of the Board should be “to protect the organisation’s ability to take risks”. I gave a short presentation on the risks inherent in exploring new markets and audiences. It was a fascinating day with in-depth discussion and great networking.
