What you can find in this e-book "Steps towards a good audience practice: following the learnings of the ADESTE project" is the journey behind the ADESTE project, told through a collection of articles and personal reflections from the people involved in the project; researchers, trainers and experts from our team, participants in the training programmes, and external experts. The articles touch on a variety of aspects in the project and the learnings, we generated from it. There are articles on the project context, its aims, main actions and the consortium’s overall vision on audience development. Other articles presents the main research findings and further developments that research in this field should take and some articles are of course dedicated to the ADESTE training programme, its testing across Europe and their evaluation. The final articles draft some conclusions reflecting ADESTE’s main dimensions of work, cooperation and international exchange, organisational change, research and cultural policies.
