DRAWING THE CROWD: AN AUDIENCE RESEARCH ROAD MAP FOR STREET ARTS, CIRCUS AND SPECTACLE IN IRELAND

DRAWING THE CROWD: AN AUDIENCE RESEARCH ROAD MAP FOR STREET ARTS, CIRCUS AND SPECTACLE IN IRELAND
There has been a well recognised need for more comprehensive and measurable methods of audience research and documentation for the sectors of street arts, circus and spectacle in Ireland. Consequently, ISACS have been working to support the Arts Council’s undertaking to “invest in research and information programmes that increase our knowledge of public engagement". In doing so ISACS, in collaboration with the the University of Limerick MA in Festive Arts, commissioned Annette Nugent, communications consultant, to prepare a strategic road map for research and development in audience research and data.

and University of Limerick MA in Festival Arts

This expertly written document profiles the work and research so far that has been collected including critical facts and figures taken from an extensively researched network of resources. It also outlines the next steps that will progress this important work in helping to develop these sectors.  This strategic plan, managed by Dr Niamh Nic Ghabhann of the Irish World Academy, University of Limerick, and ISACS Network, will be incorporated into a piece of academic research into this area.
