New Opportunities for Artists

Being an artist has always demanded sacrifice and an ability to live a life that resembles few others. Then along came corona, and suddenly a huge aspect of what artists do in order to connect with their public vanished overnight. And while this has led to some out-of-the-box thinking, and a wave of necessary and cathartic creativity, there remains much that doesn’t seem to be coming back any time soon. How can technology help, and what analogue/software innovations and new platforms are attempting to create bridges between artists and fans? How do you make virtual shows as engaging and satisfying as events in real life? And what other new, tech-led systems are helping artists to get paid properly for their work?
