NEW APPROACHES TO NEW AUDIENCES: Seeing young audiences through young people’s eyes 

Take Over Project Final Conference | 17 July 2017 | Avignon

The partners of the Take Over project are pleased to invite you to the NEW APPROACHES TO NEW AUDIENCES conference which will take place at the Avignon Festival within the Maison Professionnelle du Spectacle Vivant on 17th July from 2-6pm. 

In our NEW APPROACHES TO NEW AUDIENCES conference we will be sharing the learning we have taken from the project along with the recommendations we have for those who might look to adopt this model in the future. We will also hear from the young people themselves who have been at the heart of the project. 

Call for participation & Selection 

At the NEW APPROACHES TO NEW AUDIENCES conference arts professionals from across Europe will have a chance to discuss approaches to audience development, hearing from the Take Over project partners about the experience of embedding and working with a youth board. 

We are able to offer a limited number of travel grants to attend the half day conference on Monday 17th July at the Avignon Festival for those organisations who are keen to explore new ways to develop their audiences.  

If you are interested in attending the conference but do not want to apply for a travel grant please RSVP to susan.winter@britishcouncil.org . We will then send you registration instructions in late May.  

Those interested in applying for travel grants to the conference should fill in the short online application form found here by Thursday 4th May.

Should your application be successful you will be contacted by one of the Take Over team and we will be able to support:

  • Two night’s accommodation for Sunday 16th and Monday 17th July in Avignon. 
  • Travel stipend of 300 euros to cover part of your travel costs to the conference
  • If your application for a travel grant is not successful we would still love you to join us for the conference and hope you will be able to do so! More details of the programme and registration instructions will be available in late May.
