These findings focus on the digital engagement questions from the first wave of our nationwide panel survey of changing views about participating in creative and cultural activities through the pandemic.

February 2021

For the digital big picture, look no further than our COVID-19 Cultural Participation Monitor Digital Report.

This deep dive into the COVID-19 Cultural Participation Monitor report looks at:

  • the use of a range of digital streaming services during lockdown,
  • intended further engagement post-pandemic,
  • and wider digital behaviours.

The survey covers the whole population, meaning that these findings provide a wider view than — and helpful context for — research focused purely on current users (e.g. our Digital Audiences Survey). In this report you will find insights on audience profiles and attitudes in terms of:

  • Digital / Online Arts Engagement
  • Internet Access and Usage
  • Social Media Activity
  • Music Streaming
  • TV Streaming
  • Video Games and VR/AR Playing
  • and more.

The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) through UK Research and Innovation’s COVID-19 rapid rolling call.
