New concert halls and cultural centres continue to be built all across Europe, often with the support of EU structural funds, and with the aim of improving local infrastructure and encouraging a spill-over effect of culture into the local economy. At the same time, many long-established venues are working to expand their reach beyond the local audience by making their content available to global audiences via digital tools. This panel will discuss the role of cultural venues in the digital era - their responsibilities, society’s expectations, and how they view themselves.
