It’s no secret that it’s a challenge to grow audiences and keep people’s attention in our competitive arts landscape. In order to keep up, we need to find new and innovative ways to connect and engage. This session is designed for presenters and performers who want to enhance their existing programming, explore ways to further their reach, and break down the barriers between audience and performer. Panelists will share how they’ve cultivated successful new concert concepts, model their strategies in a brief live activity, and illustrate how this work has strengthened their audiences’ connection and engagement.
