We are grateful to the ESRI and to Dr. Emer Smyth for her work on this report, which provides us with useful insights into the arts and culture in the lives of 17-year-olds. In the time since this research and analysis were carried out, the world has been grappling with a global pandemic, the impact of which continues to unfold. As we plan for young people’s engagement with the arts, the challenges we have all faced this year remind us that young people’s experiences and opportunities matter at all stages in their lives, as well as potentially impacting on later patterns, experiences and opportunities.
