As part of our goal of providing highly-relevant and insightful research on the arts, Kelly Hill has created and conducted dozens of presentations in both official languages, in various disciplines and in all regions of the country. Many of these presentations are available for download below.
This presentation and discussion session helped participants develop some key storylines about the arts in Barrie. Kelly Hill presented information about artists in Barrie, culture in smaller cities, arts attendance trends, audience engagement, arts education, as well as the social and economic effects of culture. Participants discussed the research findings and how they applied to the arts in Barrie.
Kelly Hill presented Who's your Audience? Performing Arts Attendance and Marketing: A Statistical View on March 29 at the historic Sullivan Mahoney Courthouse Theatre in downtown St. Catharines.
Kelly's research-based presentation explored the benefits of the arts to quality of life, social cohesion and economic vitality as well as provided key data on St. John's and Newfoundland artists, arts organizations, arts funding, donors and volunteers. A key part of the session was a facilitated discussion about the research findings, research gaps and meaning behind the data.
