The Audience Agency
The Audience Agency is a new national organisation with a mission to inspire arts organisations to put audiences at the heart of their work
Evolved from an alliance between All About Audiences, in Manchester, and Audiences London Plus, the new venture will provide advice, intelligence and ideas to any cultural organisation planning to grow and engage audiences.

Central offices in London and Manchester will be supported by a team of Regional Directors and associates, working locally to build relationships, understand needs and deliver services.

Initially, The Audience Agency will be talking to cultural organisations across the country about changing needs, and to inform the Arts Council England funded Understanding Audiences Programme. There will therefore be launch ‘Roadshows’ in all English regions, from September to November 2012, followed up by further consultation opportunities.
