CONECTA | smARTplaces Conference on Audience and Mediation

14.03.2019 - 15.03.2019

The second smARTplaces conference takes place at Etopia Center for Art and Technology in Zaragoza, Spain. This year we address audience development through digital technology, and new forms of cultural mediation.

In a dynamic format we explore how European institutions connect and interact with their audiences, become more inclusive and involve people in the reshaping of cultural centers and their role in social change. Meanwhile, in a parallel program of activities, we give you the opportunity to discover Zaragoza’s most innovative cultural centers and artistic program.
