This year, Theater Communications Group, with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, held its second Audience (R)Evolution Convening, part of a multi-year program designed to study, promote and support successful audience engagement and community development models across the country. The program seeks to define the full spectrum of audience engagement and community development, in addition to sharing working models from the field and beyond.
Hannah Fenlon served as the project manager for the convening, in addition to being a second-year ARAD student. This year, TCG expanded on the Audience (R)Evolution program’s mission by encouraging peer learnings and opportunities for the exchange of ideas and lessons learned, serving as a vehicle for theatre-makers to identify and connect with partners at other organizations with whom they might develop new strategies and models for audience engagement.
