Museums and their geodemographic context

Here’s our new short paper to be presented at GISRUK 2023 in Glasgow! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏛️🌎 [PDF]

“The geography of the cultural sector concerns the location of producers, consumers, and venues of the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) to answer questions about their development and dynamics. Considering the case of the UK museums, we use national data from the Mapping Museums project to study their geodemographic context at the Local Authority District level. Across the UK, we observe the distribution of different types of museums according to their governance type and subject matter in areas belonging to different geodemographic categories. Both in terms of simple counts and divergence from expected values, different types of museums show vastly different distributions and trends, reflecting the variety of the sector.”
