As arts marketers, we work to create a future that reflects both our own vision and our organizational visions to better serve our audiences. But even as we focus on the needs of our organizations, the world around us changes quicker and quicker—it seems to get louder, crazier, and more angst-ridden than ever. Yet, we still must be prepared to not only confront the challenges that are sure to come our way—but anticipate them and prepare for them before they arrive.
