In 2021 Future Arts Centres published Mark Robinson FRSA's book, Tactics for the Tightrope - part manifesto, part toolkit.

Join us to hear Mark talk about the experiences of arts and cultural organisations during the pandemic, how they have been both creative and resilient because of how they have worked for and alongside communities, and why he is hopeful that a shift away from hierarchical leadership towards community connection and greater equality is underway.
