Arts Attendance in the Nation: Barriers, Motivations and Survey of Arts Participation

BISAC: ART000000

The Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA) is the nation’s largest and most reliable survey of how American adults (ages 18 and older) engage with the arts. The study of arts participation patterns is cogent to arts organizations, arts funders, and cultural economists—who have used prior surveys to inform their understanding about arts audiences or to gauge public demand for specific arts experiences. At a more fundamental level, the SPAA showcases the stunning plurality of art forms, genres, venues, and events and activities that constitute arts participation as a whole. This book discusses the barriers, and motivations of individuals attending arts in the nation. (Imprint: Nova)
