Download full article: “BRUISED, EXHAUSTED AND BURNT-OUT” : A DISCUSSION ABOUT REGENERATIVE APPROACHES TO HUMAN RESOURCES IN CULTURAL CENTRES
This article takes the pulse of cultural centres’ employees after the pandemic. It starts from reports from members of our network and compares them to the Culture in Crisis research report by the Centre for Cultural Value.
It suggests ways for leaders of cultural centres to react, building on the knowledge and experience in our network, and discusses how cultural organisations in general can straighten out their human resources practices.
It also offers recommendations about how the policy level can support these improvements, improving safety, well-being and perspectives for exhausted, overinvested and relatively low-paid professionals of cultural organisations, thus strengthening the stability and vibrancy of the sector at large.
