Be SpectACTive! international conference on active spectatorship

Be SpectACTive!, a Cooperation Project supported by Creative Europe, is holding the first international conference on active spectatorship from 21-22 July 2015 in Sansepolcro, Italy. Performers, practitioners and cultural organisations are coming together to discuss how a more participatory approach from the public can enrich performing arts programming across Europe.

The conference will be live-streamed via Periscope on the Be SpectACTive! Twitter account and the full programme of speakers, round tables and conference activities can be found online.

The project received a grant of €1,750,000 in 2014 and it involves two UK-based partners, York Theatre Royal and LIFT. Be SpectACTive! builds an international, production-oriented and sustainable network involving the most innovative European organisations working on active spectatorship.
