In focus are the subjects we consider essential in the contemporary performing arts today: the relationship with the audience, EU cultural policies, diversity & inclusion, sustainability of the sector, the value of the arts in society, and the paradigms, challenges and aspirations faced by the sector in different parts of the globe.
