In this presentation, Kelly Hill highlighted key findings from the 2013 Ontario Association of Art Galleries Data Exchange, a wide-ranging survey conducted every 10 years. In 2013, 47 Ontario art galleries responded to a survey concerning the situation of their gallery, exhibitions, publications, hours, admission fees, attendance, community engagement, arts education activities, marketing, collections, workforce, capital projects, and operating finances. Kelly also presented a few comparisons with the results from the 1993 OAAG Data Exchange.
This French-language presentation by Kelly Hill had two main topics: 1) The situation of artists and cultural workers in Quebec and Sherbrooke; and 2) Arts participation and individual well-being.
Many arts organizations struggle to reflect the diversity of their communities within their audiences, and would like to learn more about how diversity is reflected in the arts sector as a whole. This presentation provided national and provincial arts attendance statistics, focussing on key elements of the demographic diversity of British Columbia. The goal of the presentation was to build understanding and stimulate discussion among arts organizations, community leaders, and government representatives on the relationship between the arts and the diversity of British Columbia. The presentation helped attendees further develop conversations about audience diversity, based on a shared understanding of the statistical realities. The session included a stimulating discussion of trends and issues of interest to session attendees.
