Articles on Audience Development

I’m embarking on a campaign to stimulate conversation around the linkages (or lack of them) between programming and audience development. Here are some of the articles that have inspired my campaign. What’s your take on this issue? (I’m also looking to build a collection of Australian case studies on audience development and programming, so do let me know if you’re working in this area.)
