Explore the latest figures about in-person, online and participatory engagement to find out who is engaging and how it's changed in reponse to recent crises.
We look at who engaged in culture in a variety of methods (e.g. population surveys, analysis of ticket-buying) and in relation to a variety of types of engagement (e.g. in person, online and participatory engagement). Different types of people do different things; they also do them in different ways and different amounts. We track those levels of engagement and how they are changing (e.g. which groups’ engagement is up or down post-pandemic), through our own research, others’ research and in academic partnerships. But we also look at what is driving those levels and what that might mean for cultural organisations.
