for Canadians, the communities they live in and society at large, according to
a report prepared by Strategic Moves and released today by CAPACOA.
The Value of Presenting: A Study of Performing Arts
Presentation in Canada includes a comprehensive historical and
contemporary overview of the performing arts ecosystem. It reveals that
performing arts are valued by the vast majority of Canadians – across
socio-economic differences – and it provides a new perspective on younger
Canadians’ interest in live performing arts. Most importantly, the study
identifies a broad range of public benefits associated with performing arts
presentation, including better health and well-being, greater energy and
vitality in communities, and a more caring and cohesive society.
