What does this mean?
Beginning in 2016, the Cultural Data Project will have a new name, enhanced technology platform, and more resources and services that will help our users glean important insights and generate useful conclusions from the organizational data we collect.
DataArts is the interchange where cultural organizations, grantmakers, researchers, and advocates meet and provides an unparalleled perspective and opportunity for collaboration. 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 will officially launch along with the new Cultural Data Profile 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 tailored and responsive Data Profile, a user-friendly survey interface, and enhanced learning and management resources will combine to make your experience easier and more useful.
- A vibrant new national website will host the DataArts platform.
- All historic data will be transferred, safe and sound, and support will be just a click, email, chat, or call away.
Until then, current 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
CDP survey pilot
A small group of organizations will help us test and refine the new responsive Cultural Data Profile before our national launch. During this period, current CDP users will continue to complete their Data Profiles as they always have, and will access their existing data and reports through our national website at culturaldata.org.
DataArts and the new Cultural Data Profile Launch
Our name change becomes official with the launch of the DataArts national website and the new Cultural Data Profile in 2016. All historic data and profiles will be available in the new platform. At this time, additional Data Profiles can be created and submitted using the new system. Click here to be notified of progress and when the new platform is ready for your use.
Throughout the coming months we will add more features and reports, a management center, and educational resources. Check back often to see what’s new.
Introducing the new Cultural Data Profile
With your feedback, we have made significant changes to the Cultural Data Profile, creating a more intuitive and visual interface, a tailored user experience, and streamlined process. For each of our three user communities, the new Data Profile and DataArts platform will provide the tools and resources to put data to work for their cultural initiatives.
- Arts & Cultural Organizations can input and analyze data to strengthen their businesses and build support for their work.
- Grantmakers can gain insight into their applicants’ needs and discover ways to enhance their philanthropic impact.
- Researchers and Advocates can access detailed data to explore critical questions for the advancement of the arts, cultural policy, and society at large.
