Opening Doors

Welcoming diverse audiences to your venue

 

  • How often have you heard the term ‘audience development?’ 
  • Have you ever wondered what this really means and why it’s so important? 
  • Do you want to diversify your audience and make sure your screenings are welcoming to community groups who don’t currently use your venue? 
These are some of the topics we’ll explore at Opening Doors. Film Hub Wales are hosting two sessions packed full of innovative projects, where you can take part in interactive games and come away with film ideas, venue specific resources and audience development plans.
