Following on from the launch of Audience Atlas Victoria last year, Andrew McIntyre is back in Melbourne to lead a practical deep dive session that will give you the DIY know how to use the latest audience research to build your audiences, turn lapsed audience members into regulars or reach new markets.

Aimed at arts marketers, programmers, curators, CEOs, Artistic Directors, or anyone with an interest in understanding how to grow their business and practice by growing audiences, this session will demystify and explain the research by taking a deep dive into Culture Segments. Culture Segments is a bespoke, arts sector specific way to describe groups of audience members who share the same deep-seated values and beliefs. Andrew is the brains behind Culture Segments, which is rapidly becoming the industry standard for audience development.

Through detailed insights on each segment, real examples from organisations around the world that are using the segments to target, grow and develop audiences and tips on specific ways to grow audiences here in Victoria, this free session is suitable for anyone working and practicing in the visual arts, literature, performing arts, film, museums, libraries and festivals.

It’s also an opportunity to meet and mix with other like-minded creative professionals after the session.
