"Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, Be it ever so humble there's no place like home."
J. H. Payne
We have long understood that it’s not just what you do, but where you do it. Because Audience Finder data gives us such a comprehensive view of audiences for subsidised arts and culture across the country, it tells us more starkly than ever before that the place where you live is either the biggest barrier or greatest leg-up to enjoying the benefits of state investment in culture. This month we're looking in depth at what we as an organisation and a sector mean by this term 'Placeshaping' and how we can continue to support you and your local audiences to develop and enjoy cultural experiences in and for your corner of the world.
