Performing Arts for All: Utopia or Destiny? A discussion on the vitality of the performing arts in Canada and a vision for the future.

Who this presentation is for: Everyone who works in the performing arts, people involved with festivals (arts, film, literature), those who serve on arts organizations’ boards, volunteers in the performing arts or at festivals, funders and program officers in federal, provincial and municipal governments, performing artists, anyone interested in the impact and benefit of performing arts in their community.

The Value of Presenting: A Study of Performing Arts Presentation in Canada has been deepening the conversation about the role of performing arts presentation in communities and in society at large. The arts are an ideal vehicle to forge diverse partnerships that serve common goals and create social connection, reinforce a sense of place and enhance quality of life in communities.

Inga will weave together lessons from The Value of Presenting in a powerful narrative focused on evolving vibrant communities fueled by the performing arts and its community-engaged partnerships.In this context, she will discuss what it means when 3 in 4 Canadians report attending, even though presenters continue to be preoccupied with audience development. She will dispel the myth of younger Canadians not being as engaged with live performance and discuss the surprising role media-based consumption of the performing arts plays in Canadians’ lives. And she will offer a new way to look at audiences more broadly in terms of a) markets that generate revenue and b) communities that presenters wish to serve and engage with beyond paid attendance. In so doing, she will address business model issues related to audiences, public engagement and resilient organizations.
