Audience Wellbeing - how are you going?

Music on the Mind.jpg


How does audience experience contribute to well-being?

Jane Davidson and Jody Evans work at The University of Melbourne, both holding engagement portfolios in their respective schools: Jane at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, Jody at the Melbourne Business School. Both investigate audience experience, Jane focusing on socio-emotional well-being and Jody exploring the building of arts audiences and their collective impact.

In this talk, these experienced researchers engage with their audience to discuss among other things: what music audiences want and feel; how music audience experience contributes to well-being; and what can be done to improve music audience experiences?
