In the 1970s, 80% of arts funding went to individuals; today 80% goes to institutions. The arts are dominated by giant corporations that spend a growing percentage on administration. But, says Latham, the "Titanics are sinking: it is time to get into the skiffs". To survive society’s exponential change, the new artist must be engaged, versatile and independent, and able to grasp change ahead of the dominant culture. For the brave, the opportunities can be unique. Latham examines the present music and arts industry and points a way forward.
