Conversation with Daniel DeSure, Lauren Halsey, Megan Steinman, Six Sev examining definitions of audience and community, terms that are often used interchangeably yet hold meaningful difference, especially in relation to understandings of race, class, and reach. Participants will differentiate between the terms, discussing if and how they identify and sustain each one. They will share strategies, tools, and goals related to exposure, inclusion, participation, engagement, and expansion. Emphasis will be placed on how these approaches can be applied to an artist's studio, grassroots initiatives, and institutions.
