GRAIN Audience Development Survey
The largest regional survey of photography
GRAIN commissioned leading researchers and consultants Wafer Hadley to look at photography audiences in the West Midlands region. Following the largest survey in the region the results are in and a final report has been produced which will enable GRAIN and the Library of Birmingham to develop activity that is ambitious, relevant and developmental.
The research found that the region has a strong photography tradition but the region’s photography infrastructure has been relatively weak. As a starting point there was little information on photography audiences and the research was commissioned at a challenging time for arts engagement. The research showed that GRAIN has a strong foundation to build upon, and its sense of direction is very evident. GRAIN is in a strong position to engage with existing and potential photography audiences through activity at the Library of Birmingham and regionally with partners and in different locations.
