Communicating the Arts, Lausanne

Conference for Communication Professionals in the Performing Arts

22 24 June 2020

The Art of Placemaking

From 22 – 24 June, Lausanne will host the 25th edition of Communicating the Arts. The conference will gather 300 communication and education experts working in the visual and performing arts. They will come together to network, engage in stimulating conversations and rethink their institutions’ communications and audience engagement strategies. 

Theatres, operas, festivals, galleries, heritage organisations, historical Monuments and museums have the power to transform their local areas into lively, beautiful and resilient communities with arts at their core.

At Communicating the Arts Lausanne, participants will share best practices and develop new understandings through a series of interactive case studies and conversations about the growing contribution that cultural organisations are making to create better cities.

Two colleagues from the ETC network will be speaking at the conference: 

CTA invites inspiring cultural leaders and experts from within and outside the arts to hear from international trends toward placemaking, learn from their mistakes and discuss how cultural organisations can best serve their cities.
