MEC Seminar: The future of our venues
Venues and their changing role in community and education
Time & Location
02 Feb 2023, 10:00 – 12:00 GMT
About the event
Over the past 10 years concert venues have been working hard to demonstrate their value to society beyond the ‘hall one’ programme. Arts Council England’s Let's Create encourages concert venues to do more to help transform communities through culture.
Is this approach engaging all communities fairly and leading to more representative and diverse audience experience? This seminar explores the relationship between programme, community, and education.
Join the MEC panel of concert venue leaders working across programme, creative learning, and community engagement.
