In this episode, David talks with Clayton Lord from Theatre Bay Area about their work on "Audience Feedback 2.0" - a research study conducted with Wolf Brown on measuring the intrinsic impact (intellectual, social, and emotional) of a theatrical performance on audiences within 18 theatres in 6 cities throughout the United States. The study seeks to establish:
- A web-based interface to eventually allow any company to do their own impact study at minimal expense
- A data set that will be useful for artists, administrators, advocates, funders and audience members
- A series of national conversations designed to tackle how best to talk about the arts in a way that isn't economic
