I have seen many times that these different interests or ideas on what is the most important in the creative sector really need sometimes no decisions being made. And at the same time the rest of the world and your city is developing and you are lagging behind. Or does your audience understand where do you stand for? Who are you? Where do you want to go? Otherwise it is hard for them to join.
I would say that the main thing is really that you do not just start something but really ask yourself, what do we want to be. And also it is usually a few people. Melkweg was started by few people too. And one of the two guys who started left Melkweg only two years ago. He stated the director for 40 years. It has a good side but it also has a lesser side. It is that there is this main idea of how you are located in one person usually. You can see that a lot with new initiatives that the artist who knows it all and wants is all. Be careful of a founder idea that this person can only show and lead the way. The several things knowing where you go and who is the one you are following is really something to take into account.
