Take part in Bristol

We are looking for people in Bristol to take part in an interview

If you go to new music concerts, contemporary dance performances, new writing in a theatre or modern art galleries, we want to hear from you!


Researchers at the University of Sheffield and Newcastle University are working with Spike Island, Colston Hall, In Between Time, Mayk, Watershed, and other arts organisations across the country to better understand audiences for the contemporary arts. The study will lead to the production of a handbook which will be freely shared with arts organisations across the country.

Find out more about the Understanding Audiences for the Contemporary Arts.

We are looking for audience members to take part in an interview with our researcher, Dr Sarah Price. It will last around 45 minutes at a time and date to suit you, and Sarah will ask questions such as: what kind of arts events do you go to? How did you become interested in the arts? What do the arts mean to you?

There are no right or wrong answers and there is no need to prepare anything. We just want to hear your thoughts and experiences. Take part in an interview and receive a £10 voucher! For more information, download the information sheet and consent form here.

If you are interested in taking part, please fill out the form below, which should only take a few minutes to complete. We may not be able to interview everyone who signs up, but Sarah will be in touch either way.
