What does opera have in common with football? And dance with a food and heritage festival? What is the place of opera education in a European Capital of Culture? How can an opera organisation develop its outreach policy towards new audiences by joining hands with a film festival?
Arts education managers and artists from throughout Europe and beyond joined the RESEO conference at Scottish Opera - all tempted to explore even the most surprising of possible partnerships, breaking barriers with the aim of creating innovative synergies, some having already experienced such collaboration and wanting to share or renew this adventure and some simply curious- joined us for this conference to explore how opera and dance organisations, specifically their education departments, can successfully integrate events in fields very different from opera: connecting with existing regional, national and international cultural, sporting or other large-scale events.
