Engagement and Audience Building


“Engagement and audience building” are about creating meaningful connections between the arts and the community, ensuring a vibrant, sustainable, and culturally rich City of Moreton Bay.

Cultural Benefits

Strengthening engagement nurtures a community’s cultural vitality. It encourages lifelong support for the arts, cultivates future patrons, and builds a sustainable audience base that appreciates and invests in local culture.

Stakeholder Benefits

  • Artists and collectives secure a loyal following;
  • Galleries and cultural institutions see increased patronage;
  • Businesses engage customers on a deeper level;
  • Tourists receive a more immersive experience;
  • Media captures higher audience interest.


Improving engagement could result in higher ticket sales, increased artwork sales, and more substantial community support.

If engagement efforts lead to a 5-10% increase in audience size, this could mean an additional tens of thousands of dollars for larger events or institutions.
