The event was scheduled to enable participation at the ISPA conference. Charles Vallerand was the moderator. He facilitated the conversation by mediating the language barrier.

Some of the topics of common interest included advocacy strategies to advance the status of the artist, national block booking, digital innovation, curatorial practices and risk management, professional development and developing the next generation.
