Audience Development Study 2015: Group Consultations 

We are a trio of independent consultants Annette Nugent, Heather Maitland and Rachel Gibson. We have been appointed to carry out a study on audience development in Ireland on behalf of the Arts Council and in conjunction with Arts Audiences. 
Our brief is to develop a clear understanding of the audience development needs of a broad cultural cohort, and to do an initial assessment of where the cultural sector might work with academic and/or business sectors.
To this end, we’d like to invite you to participate in a group workshop to help address questions arising from our work so far, including the following:
- Do the academic, business and cultural sectors have the same understanding of audience development?
- What do cultural/academic/corporate organisations want to know about audiences for the arts?
- How do we make arts audience development priorities a reality? Who needs to / can play a role?
If you’d like to contribute to addressing these and related questions, please come to our consultation in Dublin:

On Wednesday 18 March at the National Concert Hall, Dublin: 10.30am to 1pm
Coffee and refreshments at the venue from 10am.
Many thanks in advance for your participation, 
Annette Nugent, Heather Maitland, Rachel Gibson
