Other Arts Engagement and Creative Activities
To contextualise, we've looked a little into Outdoor Arts audiences' more general cultural and creative interests and pursuits:
- When asked about their leisure interests, 72% of all respondents to the Cultural Participation Monitor expressed an interest in the outdoors and nature more generally, beyond specifically cultural offerings.
- Since the Covid-19 pandemic, 7% of all respondents had taken part in an outdoor arts event as a performer e.g. carnival, street arts.
- 63% of those that did this activity did so in 2020, while 54% did it in 2021 - showing only a relatively small pandemic decline - while 70% said it had a positive effect on their wellbeing.
- Looking at typical pre-pandemic attendance, we see that, unsurprisingly, Outdoor Arts attenders cross over massively with Museum and Heritage enthusiasts, and are also likely attenders of indoor Performing Arts.
