What does this mean?
DataArts is the Cultural Data Project’s new name. In the first quarter of 2016, we will launch the new and improved Cultural Data Profile, which is our principal and proprietary service offering, and a new national website. By combining tailored, relevant, and consolidated surveys with enhanced educational resources and reporting we are helping our users glean useful insights from the data we collect and strengthening efforts to use data to advance cultural missions.
DataArts is the interchange where cultural organizations, grantmakers, researchers, and advocates meet to share information, gain new perspective, and collaborate for the benefit of the sector. Together, we are creating an indispensable national resource for and about the arts, culture, and humanities—helping us all make the case that, indeed, culture counts.Watch Video Read Press Release
What to expect
DataArts’ new Cultural Data Profile and national website will launch in the first quarter of 2016.
- DataArts will be home to the new Cultural Data Profile (still called the CDP) and will serve as a single central platform for consolidated surveys fielded by partnering arts service organizations.
- A vibrant national DataArts website will be the portal to the new survey, management, and reporting platform.
- A tailored and responsive Data Profile experience, a user-friendly survey interface, and enhanced learning and management resources will combine to make your experience easier and more useful.
- All historic data will be transferred, safe and sound, and support will be just a click, email, chat, or call away.
Watch a video overview of what the DataArts platform will offer in early 2016. Until then, current CDP participants may complete and submit Data Profiles, access historic data, run reports, and review applicant pools using the existing CDP interface.
What's on the horizon
A small group of organizations will begin using the new responsive Cultural Data Profile before our national launch by participating in a prerelease phase. All other CDP users will continue to complete their Data Profiles as they always have, and will access their existing data and reports by logging in at culturaldata.org.
Our name change is now official, and we will launch the DataArts national website and the new Cultural Data Profile in early 2016. At that time, additional Data Profiles can be created and submitted using the new system. All historic data and profiles will be available on the new platform. Sign up to receive emails and stay informed of our progress.
Throughout 2016 and 2017 we will add more features and reports, a management center, and educational resources. Check back often to see what’s new.
