Expert SymposiumWe are excited to announce the symposium focussed on "What is the state of Audience development within the arts and cultural sector today and where is it heading?".
In 2017 we mark almost three decades since the publication of “A Guidebook to Audience Development” by Heather Maitland and seven years since the ontology “Om Publikumsutvikling”, edited by Kristin Danielsen. The objective of the symposium is thus to reflect on the point of departure, current state and the future of audience development.
More information about the Expert Symposium will be announced shortly.
