The Next Generation & Future of the Arts

Have you given any thought to how the freshman set of the arts sector are doing? Imagine being a post-secondary student about to graduate and then comes a pandemic. In this episode, Amanda Singh, Hana Glaser and Julien Rutherford, share their concerns about the future of work, what skills to prioritize and what decisions are made on behalf of youth and emerging professionals.  

On the other hand, they are still optimistic and ready to offer solutions. With their experience organizing the Culture’s Compass virtual conference by Humber College this June, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the conversations around representation and equity in the arts, they are motivated and hopeful about the recovery and rebuilding phase. In this vein, they are challenging decision makers, government and funders to make deliberate efforts regarding their interests, contributions and place in the sector.
