SMU DataArts - Cultural Data Profile


Share Your Data Success Stories!

  • Posted Nov 28, 2016

PHILADELPHIA, PA - DataArts is looking for data-savvy arts and cultural professionals to share their organizational success stories with our national network. In 2017, we will select up to six organizations that are using CDP and other data in innovative ways to overcome financial challenges, expand and connect with audiences, or advocate for the arts in their community. Through this initiative, DataArts seeks to both recognize and amplify the stories of organizations successfully using data to inform their daily work, and provide peer-learning opportunities for thousands of cultural nonprofit professionals.

Through the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, case study participants will receive a $1,000 stipend and the opportunity to work with a DataArts videographer to chronicle how their organizations use data to affect positive change. Short videos will be featured on the DataArts website, our social media platforms, and as companion resources to our free online data skills-building courses. We are looking for stories from organizations of all types, but are especially interested in featuring small to mid-sized organizations that have successfully used data to address financial or operational questions, to pursue new audiences, make a stronger case for support, or to overcome certain capacity challenges.
