At Greg Baeker‘s invitation, I was asked to speak to Arts Consultants Canada, an emerging association of consultants to arts organizations. I introduced them to some ideas about how the web is transforming the context and (perhaps) the practice of arts consulting and the work of arts organizations.
I am concerned that the lack of awareness in the arts community in general about the changes happening as a result of the Web is putting at risk their long-term sustainability and relevance. There is a massive generational shift underway, and I am concerned that because of profoundly different uses of media, much of our cultural heritage is at risk of not making the leap across the chasm in a way that can sustain relevance for the future.
We’ve had the Cluetrain Manifesto for 8 years now.
Who is developing a Culture Manifesto for the Web Age?
