The Arts & Culture Edition!
As a team of graphic designers, writers, web designers, editors, and photographers, the arts are a subject close to our hearts.
We have seen first-hand how the pandemic has impacted the creative sectors – but also how artists have become more flexible in their working practices and adapted to the changing tides.
As a matter of necessity, most cultural and creative sectors had to learn how to operate in the digital world, and many had to evolve by improving their skills in areas such as resilience and effective remote communication.
By embracing these changes, and by creative businesses becoming more accessible through improved email and phone communication, these companies may become more competitive and more able to appeal to new national and international markets through use of the internet, social media, and other online mediums.
Taking more businesses remote and online may also create greater flexibility in working hours for those with diverse needs, while reducing the need to commute for many – thereby decreasing traffic emissions and helping to create a more sustainable future for us all.
Let’s not feel overwhelmed or defeated by the challenges of lockdown. Instead, as it eases, let us consider this a turning point, a time to take stock of all we have learned, and a chance to plan for a brighter future for all businesses – no matter what industry they operate in.
