Brief description

This workshop from the 2015 CAPACOA conference explores ways in which technology may evolve brand new practices in performing arts presentation (and distribution).

Detailed description

Technology has been creating dramatically different opportunities for enjoying digitized performing arts experiences. This session explores ways in which webcasting, mobile technologies and near-future digital evolution are being harnessed by presenters and artists to evolve new models of arts presentation. It considers how these new capabilities could be turned into a distribution network for the performing arts. It also tackles challenging questions around the current and future business model of performing arts presentation.
