Welcome to the second of the three-part Arts and Audiences conference series which will take place in Stockholm on October 10th to 12th.
As with the 2011 conference, which was held in collaboration with Bergen International Festival in Norway, we are pleased that this years’ conference will be held in Sweden in collaboration with Nordic Music Days (10-13 October), a Nordic festival for contemporary music.
For this years’ conference the main theme will be about inclusion in the arts. Again Audiences Norway invites artists, artistic directors, curators, producers, learning managers, communication managers, cultural architects and strategists to join forces and investigate common goals and ways of collaboration.

The experiences from the first Arts and Audiences in Bergen in 2011 have been part of the planning for the conference in Stockholm. Based on feedback, it is important for us to maintain the following points:
- Sharing of knowledge, discussions and networking
- Partially optional program - a choice between workshops and visits
- Documentation - a high level of documentation, with photos, video streaming, active twittering and reports
