Mind the Gap

Great performances have nothing to do with how many Facebook friends you have, but in today’s cultural marketplace it can certainly feel that way.

In the performing arts, we spend a lot of time obsessing over the hurdles we feel we need to overcome in order to connect performances with audiences. Age gaps. Genre gaps. Economic, social, and technological gaps. But are we trying to close the gaps we see by transforming our presentations, our marketing, and even our art in ways we haven’t thought through or don’t stand behind?

Here at Mind the Gap, we track ways to engage in this modern cultural conversation without losing your soul, hopefully filling in some of the blanks and providing a banister so no one trips on the current catch phrase.
