Future Views Toolkit
Date Created: 24th Oct 2018
Future Views is a forward-looking research project, aiming to imagine the next generation of cultural learning in 20 years’ time.
Royal Opera House Bridge, Artswork and Festival Bridge worked together with three Cultural Education Partnerships across the South East, and commissioned Bridget McKenzie and Susanne Buck of Flow Associates to run a series of discussions, both online and in real-world workshops. Flow used these insights along with their own desk research to develop the contents of this toolkit, which are intended to support exploration of big questions about making and consuming culture, learning, and working in the future.
This toolkit shares their findings and the workshop tools for any LCEPs to use for their own consultation and future planning.
The research consulted with young people and cultural leaders to explore:
- What are the emerging technologies, organisational behaviours and critical trends in the world that might shape cultural learning in a local context?
- If these changes are happening, how and where in their lives will CYP be making and consuming what kinds of art & culture?
- In education and technology, how will these changes impact on CYP’s opportunities to access art & culture towards their learning?
- If there are these changes in the wider world, what skills will young people need to access meaningful employment?
