Audience Development: engagement is the key, but where are the doors?
Challenges, dreams and limits in activating people in cultural participation
A round table to exchange success and failures

Be SpectACTive!, a project supported by the Creative Europe programme, is holding a conference on active spectatorship as part of the European Culture Forum 2016.

The event is a unique opportunity to share results, suggestions and challenges in audience development; an opportunity to meet professionals, practitioners and cultural organizations in order to discuss the ways in which a more participatory approach from the public may enrich performing arts and their programming all over Europe.
