The Economic and Social Impact of Arts in Surrey.
A recent study by the University of Surrey, in partnership with the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford; Watts Gallery - Artists' Village, Compton, and The Lightbox gallery and museum, Woking.
The research was carried out between March and July 2020, by Professor Gang Li, Professor Caroline Scarles, Dr Jason Chen and Dr Anyu Liu from the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Surrey, and reflects levels of pre-Covid spending and attendance. It comprises two parts, social and economic, bringing together survey data collected directly from attendees to each organisation, in combination with interviews conducted with groups using the venues for additional community-related activities.
