The IMZ Academy “Re-Imagining Opera for the Digital Age” takes place from 28-29 September 2017 in the course of the International Televison Festival Golden Prague and helps opera houses to identify and establish relevant strategies to promote and position themselves in the digital world.

IMZ Academy Director and Head of Digital Development at BBC Arts, Peter Maniura on why digital strategies are vital for Opera and how they can unfold their full potential:

“Opera is all about communicating to an audience, but it needs to connect with new ones and to communicate to existing ones in fresh ways. Connecting through digital is not just about marketing, it’s a creative imperative which should energise and involve everyone in an opera house and help to develop and refresh the art form in the twenty-first century. That’s the bold and challenging ambition we aim to address in Prague this September!”

• Speakers from renowned organisations share their professional insights and know-how
• Practice-driven approach to learning with real-life examples and concrete challenges
• Networking opportunities with international participants from across the industry
• Opportunity to connect and engage with representatives of the European Broadcasting Union, Cultural Institutions, Production Companies and Broadcasters at the International Television Festival Golden Prague
