ARTS UNLIMITED: Strategic approach to working with audiences

  • 26th of May, Small Auditorium

What are the latest trends and developments in the field of audience engagement in Europe, Britain and in the Nordic countries? How do some of the greatest cultural organisations welcome and reach out to their existing and new audiences? Can barriers be removed by taking arts out of the usual settings?

British Council Finland together with Tampere Hall host an international seminar on 26 May 2014 focusing on sharing best practises, innovations and models applied in different contexts.Audiences in Tampere Hall and elsewhere are invited to participate via Twitter throughout the day.
