My essential reads: co-creating value through audience engagement

Woman and girl hug

Ben Walmsley shares his essential reads that include key ideas from leading practitioners and researchers about how cultural value can be co-created with audiences and participants in a democratic and collaborative way. What interests him about this kind of thinking is not only that it opens up questions of cultural value to a more diverse range of voices, but also that it provides a meaningful way of engaging with audiences and enhancing their existing relationships with culture and with their favourite cultural organisations.
