York Theatre Royal & BE specACTive!

 BE specACTive! International Conference 2018

Over two days the conference will present the results of the activity undertaken over the past four years across the partner organisations, bringing together industry professionals from across Europe as well as academics, artists and representatives from the European Union, Creative Europe and cultural policy makers.

Three round tables will explore key themes and issues:

  • The notion of cultural democracy and the role of audience participation in performing arts and cultural policy
  • The impact of active spectatorship and audience-centric approach in artists’ practice
  • How taking an audience-centric approach can change how organisations work

The Be SpectACTive! partners will also present two collections of essays and a film documentary showcasing the difference experiences and practices of active spectatorship over the past four years of the project.

Free for arts and culture professionals, researchers and artists.
