General Admission: Why don’t people attend artistic events?

Why don’t you go to art events? The National Endowment for the Arts tried to figure this out earlier this year. They did an analysis of other research out there. It also looked at a number of different factors like lifestyle, the values of people who attend, and ideas for to reach people who don’t go. Don Hall and Tyler Greene, co-hosts of General Admission, WBEZ’s arts podcast join us to discuss the analysis. Plus, Krissy Vanderwarker, Co-Artistic Director of Chicago’s Dog and Pony Theater Company, joins us in studio.
