What is Audience Development?

Audience development is about putting the audience at the heart of what you do. It's often confused with marketing, but audience development is integral to all aspects of making and sharing a cultural product.

It's a long-term process across many areas in your organisation. The first part is knowing your purpose - why you exist and who you are there for. Then, researching who your current and potential audiences are. After that, you can really start to focus on your audience - through your programming, your visitor experience, and your marketing.

  • It's thinking about who your audience is before you create work - why would it interest them?
  • It's thinking about your venue - who can access it? Is it friendly and welcoming? 
  • It's thinking about marketing - are you speaking your audience's language? Are they in your imagery? 
  • It's listening to your audience - after it's over, do you know what your audience thinks? What about those who don't engage?
