Culture Track: Canada
Business / Arts released the findings of Culture Track: Canada, the first study of its kind in more than two decades, which looks at how Canadians define and interact with the arts. Based on interviews with more than 6,400 culture-goers from coast-to-coast, this landmark research offers critical insight into audience behaviour to help arts organizations, businesses and government navigate the Canadian cultural landscape and stay relevant to the evolving cultural consumer. The findings were presented to a packed house by Business / Arts, its partners LaPlaca Cohen and Nanos Research and discussed by a panel of Canada’s leading arts and business voices.
