Engaging Audiences

The first Artswork Media Roundtable focused on engaging audiences.

Guest speaker Barney Heywood from Stand + Stare shared his interactive designs for clients including Dreadnought South West, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Carnegie Hall.

The group discussion examined barriers, which may exist for audiences engaging in a show or piece that uses immersive technologies. We also shared best practices on how to overcome such challenges to enhance audience engagement.
