All the World’s a Stage: Venues and Settings, and the Role they Play in Shaping Patterns of Arts Participation

Grantmakers in the Arts Reader

Why will some people engage with art in one setting, but not another? For example, why will someone watch great drama on television at home, but never darken the door of a theater? Why will someone listen to classical music in a place of worship, but not a concert hall?

This paper explores the important role that “setting” plays in arts experiences, and challenges artists and arts organizations to think more broadly and more creatively about where audiences encounter art.
