In preparation for the meeting, we commissioned a series of articles with a view of bringing fresh ideas and alternative approaches to the theme of audiences. Discover them below:

Nevenka Koprivsek puts forward her opinion on what defines the relation between the artist and the spectator while challenging some of the most common concepts around audiences and providing insight into the reality of working in the Balkan region.
Cultural participation policies: A poverty of ambitions
Dr David Stevenson talks about audience diversification, confronts the dominant hierarchy of cultural activities, and looks to create space for valuing everyone's chosen cultural experiences the same way.
All we need is audience development?
Goran Tomka explores the definition of audience development from different angles, explains the correlation between spectatorship and citizenship, and studies the phenomenon of an implied or implicit audience.
