Mind the gap: audience, governance and policies
More and more organisations are reinventing the direction of local cultural policies as well as models of governance in favour of new processes that resolutely renegotiate relations between the individual, society and the capacity of the organisations and institutions to respond to the cultural needs of citizens. This is partly because, more than ever, "audiences" are also "creators" of the present world - this is a reality that our organisations and the local cultural policies cannot ignore. But under what conditions can cultural organisations help bring more efficient, bottom-up approaches in their governance and to cultural policy-making? To what extent can their involvement lead to new inclusive practices or new forms of participatory hegemony?
