For the first time, publicly-available consumer research has been conducted to learn what tweens and teens think about the arts and what influences their decisions about where and how to spend their free time. During the webinar, we discuss the findings of the new Wallace Foundation-commissioned report, Something to Say. The report----based on market research, interviews with experts, and observations of exemplary programs---suggests 10 principles that afterschool arts education providers can follow to attract and retain urban tweens. These recommendations are based on direct interviews with urban, low-income tweens and teens, parents and caregivers, and leading practitioners, and may be applicable to tweens and teens from all walks of life.

It's the kind of market research seldom made public. You can download the full report here (PDF).
