    Squiggly Careers, Rockstars and Superstars with Anna Wiseman of Wise Collaborations

    Squiggly Careers, Rockstars and Superstars with Anna Wiseman of Wise Collaborations

    In this insightful episode, the third of our International Women's Day series, host Lucy Costelloe sits down with Anna Wiseman, Director of Wise Collaborations, to explore the concept of "squiggly careers" and how arts professionals can embrace non-linear career paths. Anna shares her journey from audience development and marketing in heritage and theatre to project management, ticketing systems, and eventually setting up her own consultancy.
    You'll learn:
    What a "squiggly career" is and how it differs from the traditional career ladder approach, allowing for more variety, growth opportunities, and alignment with personal values.
    Anna's theory of "Rockstar Mode" vs. "Superstar Mode" – how some professionals thrive on specialisation while others need constant challenges and variety as "generalists."
    Why arts professionals are well-positioned for squiggly careers due to their resilience, problem-solving abilities, relationship-building skills, and capacity to wear multiple hats.
    The importance of identifying your core values and key strengths to guide your career choices and navigate potential distractions or misaligned opportunities.

    The Disruption Dilemma: The Complexities of Audience Behaviour

    The Disruption Dilemma: The Complexities of Audience Behaviour

    This episode of The Arts and Everything in Between was ecorded live with an audience of Ticketsolve community members. Hosted by Lucy and featuring a panel of industry experts from venues across the UK and Ireland, the discussion is sparked by findings from a Ticketsolve survey revealing that 92% of organisations have faced disruptions due to audience conduct, yet only 60% had a defined policy around audience behaviour.
    The panellists candidly share real-life examples of challenges like alcohol smuggling, late arrivals, photography violations, and confrontations with unruly patrons. They explore different approaches such as bag checks, dance floors, bar policies, and staff training to mitigate issues while maintaining an enjoyable atmosphere. A key theme is the need for consistency in messaging and enforcement across venues and events.
    The conversation weighs the balance between implementing firm rules and exhibiting flexibility to foster an inclusive environment that can be adapted to various audiences and show types. Ultimately, the episode provides insights for empowering staff, setting reasonable audience expectations, and prioritising safety while delivering outstanding audience experiences. Practical tips are offered for theatre professionals grappling with this increasingly prevalent issue.
