The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way people engage with arts, culture and creativity. Artists and cultural organisations are faced with decisions about how to connect with audiences and adapt to the changing circumstances.

Patternmakers, 2020

In response to this challenge, a large-scale nationwide study is being undertaken to capture actionable data about how audiences feel about attending online and in-person events.

Using the data from this study, I have prepared two short reports that present focused analyses of the perceptions of Queensland dance audiences.

For more information about the Audience Outlook Monitor, to read nationwide fact sheets and to explore the full dataset, see the Patternmakers website.

Thank you to Patternmakers, WolfBrown and the Australia Council for the Arts for your leadership in undertaking this important audience research project and disseminating the dataset in a highly accessible format.
