SESSION 2 | A Balancing Act: Art and Commerce
Most presenters rely on earned revenue and particularly ticket sales for some portion of the budget. However, what is a meaningful artistic project may not translate to sold-out houses. How do walk the tightrope to present the work we want and generate the revenue we need?

14:35 SESSION 3 | Festivals: Thinking Glocal?
For many directors, the term "international" is embedded in the title and/or the mission of their festival. And yet at the core, support for most festivals is through the local community and with it an expectation that local artists and organizations will be engaged and showcased. How do we balance the international brand with local needs?
15:35 Break | Tea and Coffee
16:00
- 17:00
SESSION 4 | Curation and Community
One of the biggest responsibilities and challenges of every curator is building a connection with artists, audiences and local communities based on trust. The ideal situation and the aim of every programmer is to be able to introduce cutting edge projects or unknown artists. Is this possible? How do we deal with the long term process of trust building?

Pre-War (pre-1946), Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Gen X (1965-1980), and Millennials (1981-2000): It seems clear cut but in reality there is no clear delineation between or among generations. Is the nature of leadership changing through these transitions? Do governance and management structures need to transform to facilitate the shifts? Is there an increased responsibility to be proactive? This cross-generational, cross-cultural dialogue will explore the truth to these questions.
