Planning for Renewal and Regeneration

Ali FitzGibbon, Jonathan Price, Jenna Hall, Tony Reekie

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


During the Festival Makers Forum in Autumn 2021 a recurrent theme raised by the attendees was the challenge of bringing about and sometimes even talking about regeneration and renewal of their festival context. In response, Ali FitzGibbon led a two-hour interactive workshop to explore how we make decisions about the future, who is involved and how do these decisions develop organisational sustainability. Built around questioning strategies relating to succession planning, change management, and inclusive leadership, participating festival makers worked in small groups to share experiences and discuss ideas. This workshop aimed to better equip festival makers to start or progress conversations internally and with external partners about the future of their organisations and events. This is a reflective summary of the session including contributions from co-facilitators
