George Mason University’s School of Theater and the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ Office of Diversity and Inclusion present Cultivating 21st-Century Audiences. This networking event and panel discussion featuring D.C.-area performing arts center leaders aims to explore goals and challenges surrounding the cultivation of arts audiences. The evening begins with light refreshments and networking from 4 to 4:30 p.m. followed by the panel discussion, which will include an open question-and-answer session.

The discussion will be moderated by Djola Branner, professor of theater and director of Mason’s School of Theater.

The event is designed specifically to engage artists and enthusiasts of the performing arts industry, foster relationships within our arts community, and invite robust conversations to strategize and question efforts in place to build the next generation of arts supporters.
