Resources are limited and individuals and groups are responsible for allocating them. There are never enough funds, tour dates, residencies, time or attention to go around, and distribution of these resources shapes the cultural field, for better or worse. Resource distribution is a form of power.

We want to take a closer look to see what those dynamics are made of, and how they act negatively and positively. What if the gatekeepers disappeared?  What is gained and what is lost without them? What might appear in their place? When does a new, disruptive force itself become a gatekeeper? Is there another way?

This is the third of four Matters Arising conversations, which invite participants to co-create the discussion using specific choreographic formats.
