Arts & Audiences 2016 - Sweden

Monday 7th - Tuesday 8th
Gothenburg, Sweden


Arts & Audiences is a Nordic cross-sector meeting point for cultural leaders, artists, artistic directors, curators, producers, learning managers, communication managers, cultural architects and strategists who want to find new ways to extend and expand audience engagement.

How can the arts get involved with the pressing need for social change? How do we engage audiences to contribute to a resilient transition into an upgraded world? And what, in practical terms, do we need to change to be successful?

If you are interested in political, institutional or artistic leadership challenges in the arts and culture sector, this is a conference for you!

During the conference speakers and guests will explore the different perspectives of “Audience", “Artists”, “Institutions" and “Leadership” and see what kind of possibilities and challenges they offer for the future.

Extend The Audience
Following the 2014 Arts and Audience "Digital Audience Experience" AEN's community manager has been developing an event plug-in package called Extend The Audience. Its purpose is to enable people to attend a curated 'track' of an event to participate in a meaningful manner.

  • Networking with attendee, venue-based and online
  • Hosted video networking and digital breakout rooms
  • Selected speaker presentations via a live stream
  • Exclusive webcast panel discussions with speakers and sponsors using your webcam to join the webcast discussion should you want to ask a question in person.
  • Dedicated venue host facilitating from an event via a web studio.

The potential for extending an audience is tremendous and not limited to the high budget provisions.

ETA - Arts and Audiences
Several executive partners from Audiences Europe Network will be attending the event 'on the ground'. Many network members are not. This ETA provision is not associate with the Arts and Audiences official program but a showcase from AEN's Community Manager, Caron Lyon who is alway pushing the boundary of what is possible for remote audience participation for the members of Audiences Europe Network.

  • A video breakout room will be in operation to discuss the topics running through the event's program.
  • This networks chat feature (bottom right) will be actively monitored for chat taking place directly within this network.

Timetable to be announce
