Audience-oriented Area of the Grand National Theater

Ministry of Culture
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The Audience-oriented Area of the Grand National Theater was implemented in 2018 thanks to the experience gained in the Audience Training Program (2012-2018), the first audience development program in the country and in the public sector.

The purpose of this area is to generate connections between the citizens and the shows offered in different theater locations, through programs and services. Each spectator is encouraged to attend the activities of the Grand National Theater (GTN), in an environment where all perceptions and opinions are valuable, and where learning takes place through meeting and talking to others.
The area is structured as follows:

Education Department, with two programs: Audience Training Program and the Young Critics Club.
Community Department, with four programs: Large Audiences, Senior Citizen Program, 'Stage' Families, GTN Without Limits, addressed to people with disabilities and GTN Neighbors.

Has the implementation of the policy/measure been evaluated?: 
If yes, what are the main conclusions/recommendations?: 

The activities of the Audience Training Program have a positive impact on school children and adolescents, and teachers. On the one hand, they awaken interest in the consumption of performing arts and motivate them to research and practice the arts in their school environment. Likewise, teachers feel their management is more valued, as it is a program that meets their needs and gives them training in the use of pedagogical material. We gathered this information in the round table on the results of the use of pedagogical material for the educational shows, conducted on Saturday, December 7, 2019 in the GTN.

Based on the results, we think that there is a change in the adolescents' perception on the performing arts and the professions emerging from it, as well as that theater is an art that helps them reflect and obtain a critical take on life and on the social problems that afflict them.
