Audience Engagement: Research from The Wallace Foundation

The Wallace Foundation

Building Audiences and Reimagining the Future of the Arts

The Wallace Foundation supports audience-building efforts by arts organizations, including orchestras, and commissions research to understand what works, what doesn’t, and why.

Learn more about Wallace’s Building Audiences for Sustainability initiative.

The Wallace Foundation’s newest series, Reimagining the Future of the Arts brings together leading experts in the field to facilitate conversations around some of the most pressing issues facing the arts sector today. Each conversation is grounded in research commissioned or supported by Wallace.

In July 2021, The Wallace Foundation announced a new initiative focusing on arts organizations of color.
