Communicating the Arts Lausanne 22-24 juin 2020
From 22 – 24 June, Lausanne will host the 25th edition of Communicating the Arts conference (formerly Communicating the Museum).
Communicating the Arts Lausanne will gather 250 communication and engagement experts working in museums and heritage, the visual and performing arts.
Theme : The Art of Placemaking
Theatres, operas, festivals, galleries and museums have the power to transform their local areas into lively, beautiful and resilient communities with arts at their core.
Placemaking is a call to action for the arts world to capitalise on local assets, inspiration and potential to create public spaces that promote good health, stimulate local economies and lead to increased creative activity, innovation, diversity and civic engagement.
At Communicating the Arts Lausanne we will share best practices and develop new understandings through a series of interactive case studies and conversations about the growing contribution that cultural organisations are making to create better cities.
We invite inspiring cultural leaders and experts from within and outside the arts to hear from international trends toward placemaking, learn from their mistake and discuss how cultural organisations can best serve their cities.
