Bob Harlow, author of Taking Out the Guesswork: A Guide to Using Research to Build Arts Audiences, delivered a keynote address at the 2016 conference of Arts Reach, an association of arts professionals. He showed how three arts organizations—the Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle, the Clay Studio in Philadelphia and the San Francisco Girls Chorus—used audience research to attract and retain audiences that had previously eluded them.

Creative New Zealand has published the latest Audience Atlas New Zealand research to provide indepth information on this country’s market for arts and culture.

The companion study to New Zealanders and the arts, Audience Atlas New Zealand 2017 is the latest update on the triennial research, which began in 2011. It shows how the market for arts and culture  has changed in composition and value – and how attitudes have changed – over time.

Audience Atlas New Zealand 2017 measures the current, lapsed and potential markets for more than 40 artforms. The study also explores New Zealanders’ behaviour and attitudes towards supporting the arts through donating, volunteering and joining arts organisations.

As well as providing a national overview of the culture sector the research includes specific information by artform, audience segment and region.  It is designed to benefit all arts and culture organisation regardless of size.

Creative New Zealand aims to build arts organisations’ understanding of audiences and increase their ability to develop markets for their work, which will ultimately strengthen the sustainability of country’s arts and culture sector.

Audience Atlas New Zealand 2017 was launched at Creative New Zealand’s annual arts hui Nui te Kōrero on 23 May 2018.

Connecting Australians: Results of the National Arts Participation Survey is the third in a landmark series by the Australia Council for the Arts, following editions in 2009 and 2013. It measures Australians’ engagement with the arts in 2016 – attending arts events, exhibitions and festivals; reading; listening to music; sharing and connecting with the arts online; and creating art themselves.

The arts encompass theatre, dance, visual arts and craft, music, literature, First Nations and cross-art form work. Engagement with a person’s own cultural background through the arts is articulated for the first time, along with festival attendance and community arts and cultural development activities. The survey also captures the value of the arts to Australians through their attitudes, views about the impacts of the arts, and propensity to donate time or money to the arts.

This interesting 2017 resource from TRGarts allows arts professionals to set some of the key metrics for arts organizations to build loyalty. It's very useful to better understand where you are at in terms of your ability to attract vs. retain users as well as to be able to set goals and start your first steps towards an organized loyalty plan in time. It outlines the importance of keeping the churn rate or attrition low as much as acquiring new single ticket buyers in order to grow in a sustainable way, providing good examples and figures to express these concepts.
