Who is in the room?
Audience development and inclusion are the buzzwords of the contemporary arts field today. Is this focus on audiences and inclusion inspired by political agendas or by artistic values or both? Should we focus on seeking new audiences or should we engage more deeply with the existing ones? Are we there to mirror or create the audience? Can we talk about who is in the room and not only about who is not? Whom do we want to reach and why do we address audience to start with? Are we aware of what motivates our work with the audiences? Are we transparent about our relations with them? Do we include the right people in this relation?
