Performing Arts Connections Australia in partnership with the Chamber of Arts and Culture WA are delighted to bring Bryan Joseph Lee, a creative producer and arts marketer, from New York to Perth for this industry discussion on audience development, inclusion and diversity, and what it means to produce work in conversation with communities.
Drawing on years of experience from Woolly Mammoth Theater Company, Round House Theater, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and The Public Theater, Bryan Joseph Lee will point to what’s effective about ‘community’ arts programming and audience development, what’s problematic, and where we can imagine a better future.
He questions what is of need in your community…what’s exciting…what do you want to build? – And how does that align with what an arts organisation can provide…exploring what resources and skills you can bring to bear with the conversation the community is already having.
WHAT WILL BE COVERED AND WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Bryan will be covering key issues around the arts and community including:
- Audience Development and the challenge of mutuality - A marketing effort or a genuine dialogue about relevance.
