The world has changed in many ways since the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that we are a year in, we ask: how can arts & culture organizations respond to what their community need most?

At the outset of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, Slover Linett and other researchers recognized the need for the arts and culture sector to listen, ask questions and be in conversation with the communities it serves – including members of those communities who have long been underrepresented in direction-setting conversations. With that goal in mind, Slover Linett researchers (in collaboration with our colleagues at LaPlaca Cohen) launched a national research initiative called Culture and Community in a Time of Crisis, one of the most ambitious audience research studies in the cultural sector. The first phase of the study, an online survey of 124,000 adults in all 50 states, gave researchers a robust dataset to explore and resulted in two public reports. In this session, researchers from Slover Linett will present their most recent report, “Centering the Picture”, which looks at the data through the lens of race and ethnicity in order to inform the sector’s racial reckoning and efforts to decolonize and democratize.

Attendees will hear from researchers about different patterns of participation and inclusion among BIPOC-Americans, the role of digital arts and culture engagement during the pandemic, and how Americans (and BIPOC-Americans specifically) hope arts and culture organizations will change to become better for them in the future.
