CRISIS in the Arts

From the moment I thought about applying for this job it seemed to me that the most interesting thing about it has always been the opportunity to make what the Arts Company does integral to the mission of CRISIS Skylight and vice versa.  Indeed, what could be more intriguing than a public building offering wonderful creative opportunities to the general public and sharing space with some of the most marginalised people in our community…and to make it work as a business!  I’m really enjoying sitting with Kate and her colleagues from CRISIS and allowing the operational implications of these grand sentiments to emerge and then finding possible ways forward.  All in the spirit of – we’ve not done this before but it is definitely worth doing.  The concept is complex but the delivery has to be simple.
