CEDAR is a 14 country consortium (2015-18) of 29 audience researchers funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK.  

The network’s Final Report – ‘Audiences, towards 2030: Priorities for audience analysis’ – is now available for download on the University of Surrey’s repository. Please click here to download it.

The network came together to map trends, gaps and priorities emerging over the past decade in the transforming field of audience and audience studies.

CEDAR asked – What has been so transformative about the transformative decade (2004-2014) in audience research? And, how can we move from current trends to a vision of the future of the field?
To answer these questions, our research has undertaken a year-long analysis of emerging themes in the past decade of research about audiences. Our second phase of work involved a foresight analysis for the future of audiences in 2030. This consists of three distinct exercises – trend mapping, stakeholder consultations and scenario building.
