Audience Atlas whole-market studies define the culture market in your geographic area, support realistic target setting and identify your potential markets.
This iteration of Audience Atlas Aotearoa couldn’t come at a more important time for New Zealand’s cultural sector as it adapts to the realities of the pandemic and beyond.

MHM’s Audience Atlases are comprehensive population studies of those in the market for culture. They explore levels and potential for cultural engagement, profiling past, recent, and future propensity to engage with a wide range of artforms, leisure activities and cultural organisations.
We have delivered large-scale, robust and representative Audience Atlas surveys in over 20 countries, helping cultural and heritage institutions to size, profile, segment and engage their current and potential markets.
Each Audience Atlas is a targeted online survey of the adult population of any given nation or region. It accurately determines the current (or active), lapsed, and potential market sizes for different art forms and genres; including, for example, heritage attractions, museums, galleries, classical music, contemporary dance and cinema (among many others).
Each Audience Atlas survey also asks questions about interest in and attendance at a range of named arts and cultural organisations in that area. For each named organisation, we can establish market awareness (who’s heard of you), market penetration (who’s visited you), and market potential (who’s likely to engage with you in the future). We can also provide comparator data on awareness and attendance with a range of peer organisations.
A major study of New Zealanders’ cultural habits and preferences has revealed both significant challenges and huge opportunity for audience and organisational development in New Zealand. Watch the three deep dive webinars and download the full, free report and smaller summary sections.
