Reset Culture Sector

The cultural sector strand of our Reset programme aims to help foster resilience and adaptation as we work together through the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic

In autumn 2020, A New Direction launched Reset – a programme of support to foster resilience and adaptation within the sector as we work together through the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Across the 2020-21 academic year, we’ll be supporting London’s cultural sector with a mix of big and small change activity, including peer-to-peer support sessions, large scale events, and online discussions.

CPD sessions

From looking at best practice in digital work, to tackling contemporary conversations around access, funding, and career development, our series of sector-wide CPD sessions will give you a space to explore practice and develop your knowledge.

The events take a cross-arts approach, connecting people working in all areas of cultural learning, and will be directly informed by the work of our Reset Peer Support Group – a cohort of arts professionals who are currently exploring innovative practice and testing new ways of working.

Reset Collaboration Plan

Our Reset Collaboration Plan has been shaped over summer 2020 through conversations with collaborators working across culture, education, and local strategy, alongside analysis of a range of published materials.

The plan shares a set of prompts, questions, and ideas that we hope offer a starting point for joint cross-sector planning between organisations working in culture, education, and local strategy in the context of Covid-19 and the impacts it’s had on our lives, professions, and learning.
