Case Study

Cultural institutions are encouraged to compete for visitors and audiences; venues have to balance their own goals with those of their residents and different genres are seen to not have enough in common to collaborate. Explore case studies from across the globe that challenge these assumptions and show that when bridges are built with competitors, cross-genre and cross-geography you can deepen engagement internally and ultimately with your communities.

Discuss world leading examples of cross-genre and co-located arts and cultural initiatives from the USA and Sweden where museums, visitor attractions, opera, ballet and orchestra’s share a vast number of audiences and donors. How do the Tulsa Arts Management Consortium and Malmo Opera & Musikteater channel competition to allow them to communicate the true story of the arts and its impact in their cities.
