Conditions and needs of the professional American theatre by National Endowment for the Arts( )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, Sophie has dreamed of being kidnapped into an enchanted world her whole life. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, she knows she'll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks, wicked pet cat, and dislike of nearly everyone, seems a natural fit for the School for Evil. But when the two girls are swept into the Endless Woods, they find their fortunes reversed -- Sophie's dumped in the School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School For Good, thrust amongst handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication. But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are?

Who reads literature? : the future of the United States as a nation of readers by Nicholas Zill( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, provides statistical support for what is generally observed about American readers: that they are predominantly, educated, non-minority middle-class women. Readers are mostly professionals, women more than men, whites more than minorities, suburbanites more than rural or city folk. Zill moves this material from commonsense observance to sociological fact. The unusual comments he makes include: self-defined fiction readers often can't name the authors they've read, compared to those who read poetry for enjoyment; part-time workers read a great deal more poetry than anyone else in the labor force.

Race, ethnicity, and participation in the arts : patterns of participation by Hispanics, Whites, and African-Americans in selected activities from the 1982 and 1985 surveys of public participation in the arts by Paul DiMaggio( )

2 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report utilizes data from the 1982 and 1985 Surveys of Public Participation in the Arts to describe differences in patterns of participation in selected arts related activities by Black, Hispanic, and White respondents. Arts participation by Whites is greatest for all selected activities, except for Black attendance at jazz music activities. For most activities, absolute differences are relatively small, and net differences between Blacks and Whites are more marked for visually oriented art than for performing arts activities. Hispanics participate at rates similar to those of socioeconomically comparable Whites. Differences associated with race are small compared to those associated with educational attainment, income, occupational prestige, and gender; and socioeconomic factors are principal participation barriers for Blacks and Hispanics. Intergroup differences are smaller for younger than for older respondents and appear to be the result of an increase in the number of years of schooling of younger Black and Hispanic respondents. Suggestions for further research are offered, and an appendix contains tables of the surveys' statistical data. (JHP)

Socialization and participation in the arts by Richard J Orend( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Socialization is a process by which children learn the attitudes and orientations that will guide their behavior as adults. The analyses described in this report use this socialization model as a basis for describing the relationship between childhood and early adult arts-related experiences and current arts-related leisure participation. Three basic areas are analyzed using data collected in the 1982 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (sppa): (1) the patterns of socialization; (2) the relationship of socialization patterns to current participation in arts-related activities; and (3) the relationship of socialization patterns to the demand for increased participation in arts-related activities. The basic hypotheses of this analysis are: (1) that early arts-related experiences are related to later arts-related participation, and (2) that those individuals with a greater number of youthful experiences are more likely to have higher current participation rates. These hypotheses are supported by results which show strong positive relationships between arts-related socialization experiences and current participation. Another part of the relationship between socialization and participation is introduced by examining the characteristics of individuals who do not exhibit the prevailing pattern of socialization. Finally, demands for increased participation and barriers to increased participation are examined in light of socialization experiences. Numerous tables and figures are supplied in the text and in an appendix. (Bz)
2002 survey of public participation in the arts( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes U.S. adult arts participation in 2002. It shows attendance at live arts events (such as concerts, plays, and dance performances), as well as the number and percentage of adults visiting art museums and reading literature. The survey also investigates arts participation through broadcast and recorded media, the Internet, and personal participation such as singing in choirs or making photographs. In addition, the report discusses demographic and geographic differences in arts participation, and compares 2002 rates to those found in 1982 and 1992
Expanding the audience for the performing arts by Alan R Andreasen( )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Becoming involved in the arts is a process that involves movement through several stages, from disinterest to active attendance at and enthusiasm for performing arts events. Since target consumers at any time will differ in their placement on this continuum, marketing programs to expand arts audiences must first identify where each target segment is and then motivate that group to move to the next stage. A six-stage model, labelled the "Performing Arts Adoption Process," is a first approximation of this process. Data from the survey of Public Participation in the Arts are used to test the model and explore its implications. Detailed comparisons of consumers at adjacent stages in the process, using both bivariate and multivariate analytic techniques, appear to support both the validity and the usefulness of the model to both arts managers and future researchers in the field.

Managers of the arts : careers and opinions of senior administrators of U.S. art museums, symphony orchestras, resident theatres, and local arts agencies by Paul DiMaggio( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey report provides information on senior administrators in four types of arts organizations: resident theaters, art museums, symphony orchestras, and community arts agencies. It examines: (1) their backgrounds and careers; (2) the rewards they receive from their work; (3) their expectations about future employment; (4) their training and their evaluation of it; and (5) their professional participation and attitudes on a number of management and policy issues. The study found that most administrators came from relatively privileged social backgrounds and were notably well educated. Administrators were initially recruited into their fields from various sources, many entering their fields immediately after completing their formal education. Arts administration careers lack the formal structure of most professions. A lack of resources and other more subjective rewards may lead to attrition among some directors and administrators. Administrators in all four fields believe their preparation could have been much better. It appears that arts administration is a term that describes not a single profession, but a family of occupations, each with its own labor market. Arts organizations face challenges in recruiting and retaining talented administrators. (SM)
