Australians and the Arts

Australians and the Arts

By Paul Constantoura


This book is the full version of the Saatchi and Saatchie report, Australians and the arts. It provides detailed answers to the questions raised about how Australians really see the arts.

A snapshot of the main findings can be viewed in more than 90 boxes which offer easy-to-read explanations of the outcome of the national survey of Australian’s attitudes towards the arts. However, for those interested in the more detailed analysis, there are almost 100 charts and tables in the body of the report. These are accompanied by a full explanation of how the survey was conducted, how people responded and what each finding means for promoting the value of the arts to all Australians.

It is supplemented by almost 200 additional charts and tables on the associated CD-ROM which also includes quotes of the views expressed by people participating in the study.
