On Tuesday afternoon I met David Brownlee, the new Chief Executive of Audiences UK – the network of regional and national audience development agencies. David, who worked closely with us when he was at Arts Council England, was keen to stress that the work of the audience development agencies includes promoting active participation in the arts. We discussed the contact that Voluntary Arts has had with some of the audience development agencies, particularly the joint training initiatives created by Voluntary Arts Ireland with Audiences Northern Ireland and Voluntary Arts Wales with Audiences Wales. We agreed that there was much that Voluntary Arts and Audiences UK might achieve by working together. In the short term we plan to collaborate on collating and publishing statistics about current levels of arts participation.

Robin Simpson.
