Join us for free discussion forums to help you use Audience Finder and Show Stats. Share tips, queries and updates with other users and our team.

As organisations reopen and audiences and visitors begin to return in person, our Community Forum Live series returns for 21/22.

These forums are a space for conversation with a like-minded community focusing on an artform or specific area of our work in each session. Designed to help you get the most out of the Audience Finder Data Tools by sharing ideas and approaches with colleagues, providing insight into our wider research and developments we are working on, and so we can learn from you and continue to offer the best support to the sector in the future.

Each forum consists of a 75-minute session and is open to all organisations from across the UK. New users to our tools are very welcome - we'll be running a free onboarding session every other month for anyone who needs an introduction (or re-introduction) to the Audience Finder data tools.

Come prepared to join the conversation. Please see all available dates listed below.

Who can join?

This event is suitable for any users currently contributing data to Audience Finder or Show Stats – we’d love to hear what marketers, fundraisers, programmers, box office personnel and other users have to say. 


Available dates and topics:

Outdoor Arts and Festivals

Outdoor arts are undoubtedly great for reaching audiences who perhaps wouldn’t engage with a traditional arts venue. However, they also pose their own set of challenges when it comes to data collection, and subsequently understanding those audiences. Join colleagues in the outdoor arts sector to exchange ideas and experiences.
