Public launch events for Understanding Audiences for the Contemporary Arts, September/October 2019

We are hosting a series of public events celebrating the culmination of the Understanding Audiences for the Contemporary Arts study. You are warmly invited to attend, so please do save the date!

UACA was set up under the umbrella of the Sheffield Performer and Audience Research Centre at the University of Sheffield, in close partnership with arts organisations in Birmingham, London, Liverpool, Bristol and Sheffield. The results of this major study will help contemporary arts organisations deepen their knowledge of who attends, why they attend and how to reach new people.

Come along to one of the events below to hear about the study’s findings and talk with local arts organisations about where this research might take us next.    

Space is limited – RSVP to if you would like to attend the event. This event is open to the public, so please do pass this invitation on to anyone that might be interested. 

For a flavour of our research findings as a whole, you can download the Understanding Audiences for the Contemporary Arts handbook here:
