Research into artist residencies now available

Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 10.18.25 amThe Australia Council for the Arts has published fact sheets about research into artists residencies in 2014-15.

We did qualitative interviews and focus group discussions whilst the Australia Council implemented a survey of artists who had participated in residencies.

Fact sheets are available about the motivations and benefits to artists, the ingredients of a successful residency, the location of residencies and the support needed by artists on a residency.

The research is most useful for residency providers, grant makers and artists deciding about whether to take up a residency opportunity.

If you’d like to talk to us about the research, call Jackie on +61 428 576 372 or email jackie at bypgroup dot com

New Research on Australia’s International Arts Activity

Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 10.12.57 amWe are happy to share the recently released Australia Council for the Arts report, International Arts Activity – Australian Arts Sector.

The report summarises the research which BYP Group did on international arts activity by Australian artists and arts organisations. This was a pretty massive piece of work, consuming much of our time and brain space for the better part of 8 months in 2014-15.

We interviewed something like 100 artists and arts organisation representatives, international arts brokers, producers and residency providers. We also surveyed the national artist population, receiving close to 500 complete responses (which you stats nerds will be green with envy about ;-).

The Australia Council has released a free summary report, detailed report on survey findings and an accessible version of the summary report.

If you would like to talk to us about the research, contact Jackie: jackie at bypgroup dot com or +61 428 576 372.
