Philadelphia and Camden Cultural Participation Benchmark Project

Philadelphia and Camden Cultural Participation Benchmark Project

 

From 2003 to 2005, with support by the Knight Foundation, SIAP in collaboration with Research for Action and Alan S. Brown & Associates/Audience Insight LLC undertook a baseline study of cultural participation in North Philadelphia and Camden, NJ. The team identified five neighborhood clusters for purposes of the research: in North Philadelphia—West, Central, and East—and in Camden—North and South. The research design was based on triangulation—the use of three different methods to explore the same phenomenon. To document benchmark cultural participation in these neighborhoods, Research for Action conducted focus groups with community residents; Alan S. Brown developed a resident survey; and SIAP prepared small-area estimates of participation in cultural programs. Data collection and analysis were conducted from February of 2004 to May of 2005. The research concluded with a series of briefings with community cultural leaders to elicit their perspective on Benchmark Project findings.
