    Why is this talk proposed under society track and not arts and performances? What is the objective you intend to convey through the talk?

    Hi Zainab, the objective is to convey how a fluid eco system between artists, media, promoter and event planer need to work together to ensure a continous patronage of the arts by society. The more society consumes the more prevelant the art becomes. Thus the categorisation of society. Thanks for the comment.
