  4. 4. If you grow up in a milieu of high cultural capital it is second nature to you to engage in arts and culture as they add to ‘the richness of life’: they help you to be participatory, confident, assertive. Lynsey Hanley
  5. 5. Derby Museums Non-visitor research • Finding the time and relevance are the biggest barriers • “visiting a museum is not the sort of thing people like us do” • Museums are too closely associated with education • “A visit would be boring and our children would not want to go.” • A visit to a museum is not recommended by friends Bluegrass research 2017
