Audiences in the Arts 1

LASALLE College of the Arts, together with the National Arts Council (NAC), is organising bite-sized capsule courses in arts management which aim to equip participants with practical tools and knowledge, as well as an understanding of the principles that underpin these arts management practices. The aim is for participants to leave with enhancements to their own ‘toolkits’ for practical implementation and problem solving.

After a successful first run in 2020, the first in the capsule series – Audiences in the Arts 1 is returning with the aim to train artists, arts managers and administrators in audience management. This beginner level course will be run over two days.

This short course introduces you to a range of ways to develop audiences in the arts, from audience segmentation to acquiring better market intelligence. Who is your audience? What do we know about them? How do we attract new people to come to our shows or buy our art?

Through case studies and international comparisons, the application of theory and practical experience, participants will acquire newfound knowledge about audience engagement strategies as well as basic tools to think more critically about their own audiences.

At the end of the course, all participants will be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of audience development and engagement.
  • Apply tools that can be used for audience analysis.
