Arts and Audiences

20 October 2014, Iceland

Arts and Audiences is a Nordic 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 audience engagement.

The conference series has until 2014 been produced by Audiences Norway (Norsk publikumsutvikling) in collaboration with the hosting city of the year.

Arts and Audiences 2014 is produced by CKI – The Danish Centre for Arts and Interculture in collaboration with Audiences Norway, Producentbyrån, Kultur i Väst and The Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science & Culture.

The digital shift already turned audiences into co-creators. This year the theme will focus on how artists and cultural institutions across the Nordic countries respond to this situation. How can we utilize interactive technology in the arts itself, not just in the promotion of the arts? In what way does this affect artistic production and programming? Are we harnessing the power of audience engagement?
