More about conference:
The European Commission is holding a conference on 16-17 October in Brussels which will provide inspirational examples of audience development by cultural organisations and foster European exchange of practice on audience development strategies.“Creative Europe”, the Commission’s proposal for its future funding programme for the cultural and creative sectors for the period 2014-2020, proposes an important new focus on audience development in order to foster long-term audiences for European cultural works. With this in mind, the annual “Culture in motion” valorisation conference of the Culture programme will discuss audience development in a practical, “hands on” way, at the Egg, in Brussels.
