“Between artists, their audiences, their middlemen : changing customs, work practices and statuses?”

From simple consumer, the spectator is transformed into “actor, producer and programmer”. Internet is upturning customary practices. The cultural entrepreneur invents systems to develop close relationships between artists and their regional audiences.
Working practices are changing, giving rise to the emergence of more transversal collaborations, more civic-minded also, more socially responsible…No doubt.
Yet are these sustainable and viable? Could these be a new way of selling artistic works, of working together ? Can we talk of “new” economic models?
Are these supported by new administrative, contractual frameworks?
