CT Residents and the Arts, Culture, and Humanities—Broader Population Survey Findings
In Spring 2022, Wilkening Consulting, CT Humanities, and the CT Office of the Arts surveyed more than 1,000 Connecticut adult residents that generally represent the population by educational attainment and age, race, and ethnicity. The survey was designed to help us learn more about who in Connecticut engages with the arts, culture, and humanities, what motivates them to do so, and the perceived impact and value Connecticut residents place on the arts, culture, and humanities in our state.
Join Susie Wilkening from Wilkening Consulting and Scott Wands from CT Humanities to see what the survey revealed and how cultural organizations can use the findings to make decisions about how best to engage with CT residents, inform funding scenarios, and in advocacy efforts, to strengthen the sector.
