Audiences Black Country >
A collaborative project for organisations in Wolverhampton and the Black Country to support development of CRM strategies through a programme of seminars, data profiling and one-to-one surgery sessions. Individual organisation data profiling was also supported bythe development of a region-wide picture of levels of potential and propensity in the population to engage with cultural activity.
CultureMap London > 

May 2008 -October 2010
Developing an online resource that brought together information about cultural facilities with data about users and audiences, all linked to maps showing London's infrastructure and population. The resulting perspectives feed in to our continuing knowledge about the London arts landscape. 


Family Friendly London Pilot > 
May 2002 - July 2003

Focussing on the needs of families at a range of arts venues, the project allowed for discussion on what matters to families in encouraging their engagement with art - and provided a framework and funding for different approaches to be tested. 


Family Friendly in Partnership > 
December 2007 - December 2008

Bringing together existing family attenders and local community groups to extend and refresh participating arts venues' programming of family activities, in response to ACE's Family Friendly Toolkit. 


Family Panels
January 2010 - July 2011
Working with organisations to develop their family offer and service by integrating feedback from families into the planning and delivery of all aspects of their work.
Audiences London is helping Café Gallery Projects and Croydon Clock Tower set up a Family User Panel drawn from their local community and to maximise the value of their involvement. What they learn will feed into a simple, easy-to-implement blue-print that will enable arts organisations across London to adopt the same approach.


Respond in Practice 1 > 
March 2007 - July 2009

Exploring new approaches to cultural diversity within arts organisations. Using action-learning techniques and surgeries with Audiences London to give support to the ?cultural diversity champions' in each organisation, the participants implemented a tactical action plan to develop the diversity of their audiences. 


Respond In Practice 2 >
September 2009 - October 2010
Working with organisations to put their diversity action plans into practice, to enable them to move from planning and discussion to action. Six organisations receive five days each of bespoke consultancy while a further 14 have received a two-hour surgery session on a subject of their choice. 


Generate: Professional Development for Community Engagement Workers > 
July 2005 - December 2007

Following research amongst community engagement practitioners, a programme of CPD to build the community relationship skills of London's cultural sector. Participants benefitted from training sessions, action learning and other ongoing, practical and contextual ways to engage with local community and voluntary sector contacts. 


Outer London Venues Audience Development Support (stage 2) >
June 2010 - September 2011
Investigating how the activity to develop audiences for performing arts venues in outer London locations differs from or is similar to central London locations - and what issues are shared by different outer London venues. The project analysed participants' own box office data and focused on specific areas for potential further joint work.
