RePublik - Audiences Sweden - is a centre for audience development and engagement. We promote increased and widened participation in the public culture sector and support the development of diverse and audience centered culture organisations.
There are many similar organisations in other countries, but until 2015 Sweden had no cross sector arena do develop the agenda on audiences engagement and widened participation. Our ambition is to reflect the development within and share knowledge between all publicly funded arts and culture sectors.
Change requires engaged leadership. Our main focus, therefore, is to develop and strengthen leadership in publicly funded arts organisations. We gather and disseminate knowledge and best practice in terms of widened audience engagement. We co-operate with partners through networks in Sweden, the Nordics and in Europe.
