Tough Decisions: Webinar

Event details

  • 22 Nov 2022
  • Free

With Arts Council England having announced funding decisions for its 2023-2026 portfolio (NPO, IPSO & Transfer Programmes) at the beginning of November, many organisations now face critical decisions about their futures.  Financial models and organisational structures that have previously weathered challenging situations have been further stress-tested by the pandemic and subsequent cost of living crisis. Sector leaders have needed to draw upon every ounce of resilience and strength to support their organisations through this toughest of economic periods.

Despite pivoting, innovating and exploring every scenario possible, reductions to or loss of ACE portfolio funding will mean that many organisations now find themselves in a critical situation.

This webinar will walk through a decision-making tree to explore the options available to organisations, how they go about actioning them and considerations about how to manage external communications of significant developments.

Attendees will have the opportunity to put questions anonymously to our two experts in advance of the session and live during a Q&A.

Confidentiality and use of Data, Recordings and FAQ

We recognise that for many the issues explored in this webinar will be extremely sensitive and that there may be some participants from organisations who wish to remain anonymous when joining the webinar.

This session is therefore being hosted as a Zoom webinar, where the participant list will only be visible to the host (Clore Leadership) and speakers. This list of participants signed up for the webinar will only be used to verify registrations, to email each participant individually with a Zoom link ahead of the webinar, and to email the link for an anonymous survey immediately after the webinar. All participant information will be deleted once the survey has been sent to the participant list.

Participants will be able to put questions to the speakers anonymously via the Q&A function and are also encouraged to send in questions in advance of the event.  Zoom’s chat function will be disabled for the duration of the webinar. Keith Arrowsmith and Emma Berge’s presentations will be recorded and later posted with added captions to the Clore Leadership YouTube channel. The Zoom recording will be stopped for the Q&A to allow for sensitive discussions if required.

Selected questions/responses will be later amalgamated into a FAQ and added as a link on the YouTube recording.

The Zoom webinar link will be emailed individually at least 24 hours before the event.
