Extending The Margins - Grundtvig Funded : 2010 - 2012
AEN completed its Extending the Margins programme submitting a report in November 2012. The programme aimed to facilitate sharing of knowledge and experience of cultural managers and exchange best practice. The knowledge acquired through this process enabled managers to engage more effectively with their target client groups, making arts and culture more accessible to the widest spectrum of the population. It is particularly valuable in enabling managers to benefit from a diverse range of backgrounds, traditions and cultures offered by the Audiences Europe Network drawn from a wide pool of European countries and regions. With these widened perspectives, it is believed that managers could achieve greater impact and creativity in their own local endeavours in widening the accessibility of arts and culture and promoting cultural and creative education.
