Hill Strategies Research is a Canadian company that specializes in applying social science research methods to the arts sector.

Our strength comes from our focus on the arts, which has allowed us to develop substantial networks and knowledge regarding Canada’s arts sector.

Hill Strategies Research has three ongoing projects, which were created by Kelly Hill upon founding the company in 2002: the Statistical Insights on the Arts series (statistical reports), the Arts Research Monitor (a summary of research findings from various sources) and presentations based on our research findings. In addition, Hill Strategies Research also conducts other commissioned research projects. Our latest work is available to the right, and most other projects can also be found in the relevant section of our website. Or try a search in the top right-hand box.
