Session MP3s by Track

Performing Arts Programming

It's important to gain a different perspective on a particular arts genre, or cross-genres that may in fact be a great fit for your next season. These sessions are meant to be both informative and provocative in their focus on how to engage audiences in a specific arts genre or style. Whether bluegrass, opera, world music, or the circus - there should be something of interest for everyone in the performing arts programming track!

Arts, Education and Interdisciplinarity

Learn about the intersection of the arts with non-arts content areas to build knowledge and create broader appreciation for the role of arts in education (K-12 through higher education). Sessions will focus on projects among artists, presenters, and partners from educational, civic, and cultural institutions or organizations that have deepened learning, spurred innovation, and catalyzed action in communities across the U.S.

Arts and Issues

These sessions focus on the capacity of artists and carefully curated arts programming to transform the ways in which we think about key issues that affect our world today. Discover how your colleagues in the presenting industry are working to better inform the public and change perceptions around diversity, equality, sustainability, and other issues that are at the core of our global health and well-being.

Business of Presenting

The way we do business continues to change. This series of sessions addresses nuts and bolts, tools, resources, strategies, skills and models for success in the 21st century presenting industry. Colleagues from across APAP membership sectors offer case examples based on practical experience.

Community Cultural Development

Communities of varied size, demographics, and geographic locations have discovered the capacity of the arts and arts organizations to be key players in transforming their economic health in addition to other indicators of a bright and sustainable future. Learn about strategic partnerships and strategies that have reversed the outlook for arts organizations and the communities in which they operate.

Connecting to Audiences

As community demographics continue to change, we are discovering more opportunities to target and engage new audiences. Learn about effective strategies to expand participation in the performing arts across generations, across cultures, across genres, and other factors that are having a dramatic impact on the way work is created, presented and marketed today.

Presenting International Artists

Our connections and collaborations with international colleagues in the presenting industry continue to grow and flourish. Discover and explore the many ways in which performing arts presenting is building audiences and catalyzing communities in other countries and regions of the world. Meet potential partners and develop strategies to successfully integrate or expand global arts and culture in your presenting program.
