Belfast City Council has engaged Thrive to research information from cultural audiences on a range of topics during 2021.
- Attached are findings from June’s Audience Panel monthly poll which captures people’s thoughts on returning in person to cultural events and activities.
- Also attached are results from the first Focus Group discussion which looked at how NI audiences find out about arts and cultural events.
The research is a way for cultural organisations to hear from audiences on a regular basis on a different topic every month.
The work has been commissioned to help organisations respond, rebuild and recovery. We are also using the findings to help realise the ambitions of Council’s ‘A City Imagining’ cultural strategy.
Thanks to everyone who has been helping with this research by taking part in the Audience Panels and Focus Group.
