Learn more about Culture + Community in a Time of Crisis, a special edition of Culture Track, a collaboration between Slover Linett Audience Research and LaPlaca Cohen on a national research and strategy initiative to support the cultural sector and help strengthen communities around the U.S. during and after this COVID-19 crisis. Our speaker discusses areas in which California museum visitors are unique in their survey responses regarding: their perceptions of the sector, behaviors during COVID-19, use of digital, and desire for change in the arts and culture sector with comparison to the general public. She also highlights some differences in responses across race and ethnicity, particularly with respect to past visitation and affiliation, digital activities, and desired change in arts and culture organizations.
Jen also shares some pre-release finding from a new report by the team at Slover Linett on the role of race and ethnicity in cultural engagement in the U.S. and highlights opportunities to deepen engagement with BIPOC communities.
