Courses with mdw - University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna

  • Engaging with Audiences and Communities

    Audience and Community Engagement have become important tasks for musicians in the 21st century. In order to attract new audiences and to unfold societal relevance, cultural institutions and their actors have to think of new presentation and participation formats – even more so in view of the ongoing Corona pandemic and its consequences. In this course we will read central texts about Audience and Community Engagement, discuss international best practice examples and do hands-on exercises.
