The Canadian and Quebec cultural policies are regularly referred to as exemplary models of support to creators, presenters and access to a richness and diversity of cultural expressions. All measures in support of supply. However, examples of successful policies aimed at stimulating demand, for audience development and access to culture for all, are scarcer.


  • Initiate a national dialogue on the impact of youth audiences new cultural practices on the Canadian cultural sector and policies;
  • Further explore the relationship between audience development and artistic education;
  • Share experiences, best practices and lessons learned by creators, cultural industries and institutions, and the education sector.


The seminar will be conducted as a workshop to encourage a dynamic conversation between panelists and with the audience, led by the questions and interventions of the moderator.

Efforts will be made to ensure participation of academics, cultural practitioners and policymakers so that the seminar leads to recommendations that could inspire future researches, advocacy strategies and policy development.

The conclusions will be shared during the closing event of the Coalition’s cross-Canada conference series scheduled to take place in Quebec City, at the invitation of the Faculty of Law at Laval University, May 28-30, 2015.
