CultureCase.org publishes 200th research summary

Posted on 16/08/2017

The 200th research summary has today been published on CultureCase.org – the free-to-access website from King’s that provides lay summaries of peer-reviewed academic journal articles that are of practical benefit to advocates, decision-makers and practitioners in the arts.

The new summary, titled Using the ‘audience exchange’ approach to help first-time audiences, studies a particular kind of audience development technique: one that involves structured conversations with first-time attendees. The article is co-written by Professor Stephanie Pitts and Dr Jonathan Gross – the author of the final report of King’s fifth Cultural Enquiry: Towards cultural democracy.

The summary represents a number of important trends in research that have filtered through to CultureCase.org over the three years since the site launched. Based on a research paper that was part-funded by the AHRC Cultural Value Project, the summary is an exploration of a qualitative (rather than quantitative) methodology – the sort of which is gaining in popularity –  and it is dedicated to an overall mission of widening access to the arts, a long-standing aim of both policy and practice in the UK.

The categories of CultureCase.org – divided along the lines of insights and impacts – continue to be shaped by the audience for the site: advocates, decision-makers and practitioners.

Dr James Doeser, Editor of CultureCase.org said, ‘We want the site to stay responsive to its readers’ ideas and feedback and are keen to hear from anyone who uses the site. CultureCase.org will continue to evolve in line with this feedback and to serve the changing needs of the arts and cultural sectors. We are currently working on a project in collaboration with the Department of Informatics at King’s and the King's Digital Lab to build a data and statistics visualisation portal that will enhance the site, and we continue to work with King's academics and researchers from across the world to add new summaries.’

Launched in April 2014, CultureCase.org reflects the strength of the research literature into the positive impacts of active arts participation on education, health and wellbeing. It is provided by King’s in order the help organisations understand their audiences, donors and other stakeholder groups.
