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.
Many arts organizations struggle to reflect the diversity of their communities within their audiences, and would like to learn more about how diversity is reflected in the arts sector as a whole. This presentation provided national and provincial arts attendance statistics, focussing on key elements of the demographic diversity of British Columbia. The goal of the presentation was to build understanding and stimulate discussion among arts organizations, community leaders, and government representatives on the relationship between the arts and the diversity of British Columbia. The presentation helped attendees further develop conversations about audience diversity, based on a shared understanding of the statistical realities. The session included a stimulating discussion of trends and issues of interest to session attendees.
Kelly Hill's presentation was a two-part session in Whitehorse: Part one (morning) highlighted statistics on the arts and culture that are (or are not) available for the North, based in part on findings from the Statistical Insights on the Arts series. The second part of the session (afternoon) was a discussion of the impacts and outcomes of the arts and culture for individuals and communities.
Artists and cultural workers transform communities. But what do we know about artists and cultural workers in our cities? Kelly Hill’s presentation provided key information about artists and cultural workers in Canadian municipalities, based on the 2011 National Household Survey. The emphasis was on Summit attendees’ communities.
This presentation examines the operating, grant, and capital expenditures on culture by the City of Saskatoon between 2009 and 2012. The presentation highlights why we should care about municipal cultural investments, what types of investments are included in the study, as well as study findings for Saskatoon and 12 other citeis that have participated in this benchmarking process over the past few years.
