Tactics for the Tightrope

Subscribe to get monthly newsletters from Mark Robinson of Thinking Practice, author of Tactics for the Tightrope: Creative Resilience for Creative Communities.

Thinking Practice works with the cultural sector in a wide range of ways:

  • Organisational development, planning and being a critical friend or advisor

  • Facilitation of workshops, planning sessions, staff and board away days, or partnership discussions and negotiations

  • Coaching and mentoring for leaders in all sectors

  • Training and professional development workshops for groups

  • Evaluation, learning and reflection on practice, from ‘after-action review’ sessions to large scale evaluations of projects, usually combining quantitative and qualitative approaches and the unique Thinking Practice perspective

  • Writing and editing services – we like writing things based on our work or research, but can also help to draw out the core of your strategies and plans through our editing skills

The newsletter reflects this breadth with ideas, new thinking, tools and tactics for a culture that invites others to connect, collaborate and multiply, and to build creative resilience as creative resistance.

Each edition features reflections on new new and old ideas, maybe the odd wisecrack, and a monthly playlist.

Fresh thinking

On the first Friday of every month a new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

We promise something you can think about and something you can practise in every one.

Join others on the tightrope

We don’t know all the best tactics: we hope you will share some of yours through us.
