The challenges arts organisations now face as they come through COVID are huge.

For many, no live work will have been possible since March 2020 with no clear date on a return.

Will audiences return in the way they did before, and will they want the same experience they had before?

It is also a time for organisations to look at themselves and question what they are doing, why they are doing it, and who it is for.

Now more than ever, arts organisations need to be truly audience-focused.
