The series of workshops focused on three key areas:
Commissioning Artists And Artworks – the process of commissioning artists and artworks from concept to realisation.
Building Institutions – from building capital infrastructure to developing an organisation's intellectual capital.
Dialogue And Exchange – the relationships between institutions and audiences, between the private and the public sectors and between the national and international.
