THE Australia Council has developed a new online resource giving up-to-date information about arts and culture engagement, employment and business activity across Australia.
The Australia Council’s interactive resource provides region-specific data broken down into Australia’s 150 federal electorates. It reveals how the majority of Australians engage with arts and sport, and demonstrates how people living in regional Australia are prepared to travel for cultural and sporting events.
The interactive page allows users to choose an electorate from a drop-down menu or map which then displays statistics on arts and culture engagement.
Some of the other valuable insights include ticketing trends and participation rates. The tool helps people working in the arts and culture sector gain a better understanding of audience habits and preferences.
