The Arts Innovation Lab (AIL) is an idea exchange designed to encourage peer-to-peer sharing on building audiences through a variety of activities. We will begin by learning what is meant by “audience development”, “audience engagement” and “audience experience design”, with concrete, proven examples of success in similar-sized markets. Then we will explore how any or all of these activities can contribute to the success of your organization.

The AIL will also provide the perfect opportunity to network with your peers to brainstorm partnering opportunities to help maximize the potential of your attendance and, of course, your revenue!
