It became apparent that attendance is affected for similar reasons whether for large, established venues or for small, alternative ones. How people choose to use their leisure time to attend "high art" events breaks down roughly along lines of socioeconomic class and education level. While small art venues can use strategies recommended for large organizations to attract broader participation -such as welcoming signage, pedagogical prompts, and social events - I concluded that a significant, under-recognized value of these independent art spaces is the very fact that the artists themselves are participating members of their respective local communities, in addition to providing support to our primary audience, fellow artists
