Arts Council Malta has launched a new research study investigating the changing relationship between Public Cultural Organisations and audiences to cultural events in light of the ever-changing public health situation over the past months.
Changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2020 have altered the landscape of cultural activity, bringing to the fore new considerations related to attendance to public gatherings.

The study will take place over a four-month period. The findings of the study will be used to provide Public Cultural Organisations with recommendations on how to further strengthen their ongoing audience engagement, and strategically explore new forms of growth.
