RENEW 2023: Audience Regeneration

Annual Leadership Conference for the Nonprofit Arts & Culture Sector

About this event

Join CNM and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs for RENEW – a special one-day event for the nonprofit cultural-arts sector.

This year’s event is dedicated to exploring multiple ways to re-generate audiences, whether for: in-person experiences, online archives for national and international exposure, experiencing performances with the use of Virtual Reality, or through a commitment to developing youth accessibility.

Join change makers and problem solvers and be inspired by local stories of re-generation of audiences coming back to in-person events. We will hear insights and case studies from visionaries, connect with peers, and come away inspired for the future of live audiences.

Morning coffee and lunch will be provided.

Who Should Attend: Nonprofit players (CEOs, program directors, marketing managers, board members, etc.) and community-based artists working independently or embedded in any type of nonprofit service organization.

Location: Friendship Auditorium, 3201 Riverside Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027
