Communicating the Arts

Conference for Communication Professionals in the Performing Arts

17 19 June 2019

"The Future Of Work Is Creative Collaboration" says Benjamin Wolff for Forbes Magazine. Is it also the future of the arts? 

In recent years, collaboration and co-creation have become widely appealing concepts for many art institutions. Often, partnerships and collaborations with other institutions and with your audience are where the interesting things happen. Where new products, events and concepts emerge that open up new perspectives on what an art organisation can be.

At Communicating the Arts Copenhagen50 international professionals will share their insights into the benefits and challenges of working collaboratively. 

ETC Member, Cláudia Belchior, President of the Executive Board at the Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, in Lisbon and speaker at the conference developed two flagship projects concerning audiences’ education, inclusion and creation with an innovative take on communities’ involvement.

“In a digital era, personal communication makes the difference in what engagement is concerned” says Cláudia. This is a lesson to learn from the two projects that focus on children and young audiences, sowing the seed of theatre at an early age (3 years) and nurturing it during adolescence.

By adopting new models, aligning values, sharing resources and data, art organisations can reach new audiences, offer diverse programming and increase their revenues. But meaningful connections start with honesty, openness and vulnerability.
