On 20th and 21st April 2017, 22 audio-visual cultural manager from all over Europe involved in the AVnode LPM 2015 > 2018 project will participate to AV Audience Development Meeting 2017, a two day event in Brussels organised by Culture Action Europe.
The focus will be on the topic of Audience Development. This theme we see highly relevant as the audio-visual-performances are still a niche art. The meeting starts on April 20th at 14:00 in La Rotonde which is located in the prestigious cultural centre BOZAR, Rue Ravenstein 23. After the welcoming part we will listen to a presentation of the newly launched “Live Skills Project” by the British Council. Programme responsible Irini Vouzelakou will guide us through the concept of this project. She will be happy to receive constructive feedback from our LPM participants.
The next topic of the programme will be at 16:30 a joined visit at the international acknowledged Media and Art Center Argos. Director Rolf Quaghebeur is looking forward to show us the collection of the centre and to interact with our artists. After a short walk we will come back to La Rotonde and while we enjoy our dinner we are going to set up the space for the event starting at 21:00 In-between 19:00 and 21:00 all artists are welcome to play with their knowledge/light together with Swen Seyerlen from AVnode network.
