Join Me:
An Exploration of Creativity

Jill Robinson Jill Robinson, CEO

Yes: we’re in the middle of an epic crisis. And during crisis we react, we tunnel, we fire-fight…all of which diminishes our creative energy. This is a TIME when we may not be our creative best. But I’m starting to wonder, based on my 30 years of experience working in this sector, if arts and culture has EVER been as creative as it could be. As it should be.

So I’m turning my attention to WHY, and I’d love you to join me.

This year I’m writing about my discoveries and theories. I’ll be presenting what I’m beginning to see as systemic reasons why the arts and culture sector isn’t as creative or resilient as it could be.  Please join me here for future postings. I would love to engage with you about what I’m seeing, what you’re seeing, and what we might do to make a difference.

A Front Row Seat on Creativity

I’ve had a front row seat for a year. It’s funny, because seats are definitely a thing in my professional life…maybe even a denominator in much of my lived experience.

TRG 30 is a bi-weekly 30-minute series of conversations and provocations with CEO Jill Robinson and invited guests. Open to anyone in the arts and cultural sector, the sessions provide insight, counsel and inspiration.
