   The Diversity of Cultural Participation: Findings from a National Survey (299Kb)

This full-length report, based on a national survey, explores the widely varying motivations and expectations people have when they attend different types of artistic events. The Urban Institute investigated people's year-long arts involvement as well as their perceptions about the most recent event they attended, providing valuable information about what people want out of each artistic discipline. The report can help arts providers and researchers better understand participation in each arts area and tailor their audience-building strategies accordingly.
