The Value of Presenting: A Study of Performing Arts Presentation in Canada

The Value of Presenting: A Study of Performing Arts Presentation in Canada was commissioned by CAPACOA, in partnership with other presenting networks and an advisory committee of sector representatives. Research activities were carried between May 2011 and January 2013 by Strategic Moves. They involved consultations with more than 1,000 stakeholders, and two surveys conducted in collaboration with EKOS Research Associates.

This participatory action research was designed to identify the benefits of performing arts presentation and to envision performing arts presenters’ current and future roles within the performing arts ecosystem, in their communities and in society at large.
