Libraries Connected are partnering with St Helens Borough Council Library Service Arts in Libraries Network, Arts Council England, and The Audience Agency to host a webinar on what the library sector can do to encourage audiences to return to events when safety and restrictions permit.
The session will be led by freelance audience development expert Helen Corkery and will cover the following areas:
- When will audiences feel safe enough to attend events and activities?
- What interventions would encourage audiences to attend events in the future?
- What impact would a need to use public transport have on attendance?
- What digital content would audiences be interested in engaging with?
- What platforms do audiences use to get online and what barriers do they face?
- How likely are audiences to pay for different types of activity?
The St Helens Borough Council Library Service is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation that runs the award-winning: Cultural Hubs - Arts In Libraries programme.
Also attending the session will be:
- Clancy Mason, Relationship Manager, Libraries, Arts Council England
- Sarah Mears - MBE, Programme Manager, Libraries Connected
- Chris France, Head Of Account Management, The Audience Agency
- Owen Hutchings, Senior Arts in Libraries Officer, St Helens Borough Council
