We are delighted to present a new series of webinars, 'Sustainable Sector', focusing on different routes to a more sustainable model in arts organisations. With each webinar, we will also screen an interview with an NI cultural leader to talk about their experiences of the funding ecology, capacity, collaboration and co-creation, and what a sustainable organisational model—and moreover a sustainable cultural sector—would look like to them.
