Tactics for the Tightrope: Creative Resilience for Creative Communities by Mark Robinson

Part manifesto, part toolkit, Tactics for the Tightrope shows how creative resilience can be a process of resistance not co-option, and can help anyone connect, collaborate and multiply the voices of creative communities, to move from hurt to hope.

Tactics for the Tightrope: Creative Resilience for Creative Communities by Mark Robinson

Life on the tightrope of the cultural sector can be a thrilling, perilous act. This book – published by Future Arts Centres – is for those that want to find their own ways to dream on the tightrope and to invite others to join them. But remember, the tightrope only looks like a straight line…

Mark Robinson is the founder of Thinking Practice, through which he writes, facilitates, coaches, advises and avoids a job title.

“In this generous book about agency and change, Mark Robinson offers tools and thinking to help those working in the arts and cultural sector understand and make the best use of the assets we have, to make the change that we need. A book to read right now, for sure, and one I can see myself dipping into again for many years to come.”

Moira Sinclair, Paul Hamlyn Foundation

“Philosophical, poetic and hugely practical: I ended up feeling some of the ideas in the book as well as understanding them as concepts. The Tools and Tactics are brilliant and very immediately usable.”

Rachel Adam, Museums Northumberland bait
