Exploding the Box: The Future of Performing Arts Centre Design

Posted Mon 22nd Jan 2024 | katie.evans@ohm.org.au

Join us to explore the contemporary trends in theatre and performance art and how architecture and design can encourage diverse audience engagement.

In the past few decades, arts centre design respond to audience diversity, cultural difference and performance multiplicity. We see the same old stuff and audience numbers continue to decline. Is it due to a lack of flexibility in performance spaces? The drabness of dark, black spaces? Do these places turn their back on their communities? 

The 2024 Stephen Ashton Address will bring together leading arts and cultural curators to explore contemporary trends in theatre and performance art and how architecture and design can encourage diverse audience engagement.

Geelong Arts Centre
Sunday 18 February
3pm-4.30pm

The Stephen Ashton Address is supported by the Ashton-Nixon Bequest and ARM Architecture and is presented in partnership with Open House Melbourne.
