Virginia Hyam will share her experience of curating programmes and producing events, which have successfully engaged audiences, from indoor performances and festivals to large-scale outdoor events. Examples will be drawn from Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Fringe, Parramasala Festival and her work in the youth arts sector, as well as sighted examples from across the world. Coming from the perspective of a producer/ curator rather than a marketer, she will share insights of building a brand, involving community and capturing the attention of audiences along the way, while supporting the profile of emerging artists.
"Accessibility, Interactivity and Involvement: Programming and Engaging Audiences Workshop by Virginia Hyam" is part of the Arts-ray Series.
