Developing an audience for your cultural or heritage group

One of the difficult things for any cultural group is to develop its audience so as to get the best possible exposure for its endeavours, writes Brian Byrne.

This applies as much to a local voluntary cultural group as much as it does to a professional entity such as a touring exhibition or stage production.

And while it might seem overkill for any local cultural or heritage group to listen to an EU expert on the matter, there's always something to learn from the top, if you have time.

So any individual or group from one of Kilcullen's many such entities might well find it worth while to head to the Wood Quay Venue in Dublin City Council's Civic Offices on Friday morning next to hear Cristina Da Milano of the European Centre for Cultural Organisation and Management.

She will present the findings of the EU Commission's 'Study on Audience Development - How to place audiences at the centre of cultural organisations'.

It's free, it's from 10am-1.30pm, and there's coffee and lunch. But you need to book your ticket at eventbrite.
