CLASSICAL Format Part II

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Whatever their individual successes, and in stark contrast to the impressive support infrastructure that has blossomed around the news-and-information format in public media, classical stations have largely gone it alone, with few opportunities to share knowledge, content, or resources. But is that a problem of supply – or of demand?  We’ll continue the conversation begun the day before about charting a new course of communication in the classical arena, touching both “big picture” strategy and advocacy, as well as on nut-and-bolts issues as audience and programming research, digital rights-and-asset management, and best practices in such areas as fundraising, marketing, and community engagement.
