The Connected Audience Conference occurs every two years and convenes cultural professionals, researchers, and policymakers to engage in discussion about how to build and engage audiences in cultural organizations (museums, theatres, symphonies, etc.).

In the 21st century, successful cultural institutions need to be open spaces, acting as places and partners for learning, social cohesion and well-being in a changing world. We need to find new ways to ensure a strong audience focus in the culture sector, and for this approach to be considered a key to an institution’s culture. To explore these challenges the Institute for Learning Innovation (USA), in collaboration the Institute for Research on Cultural Participation (Germany), brings together experts, researchers, and practitioners from the global cultural sector for discussion and exchange.
