SMU DataArts - Cultural Data Profile


The DataArts Platform (in Beta!) Helps Museums Share Knowledge

  • Posted Jul 11, 2016


"A prominently funded effort to get more data into the hands of museums and theaters in the region officially launches today after months-long reorganization."    



Generocity generously covered the beta launch of the new DataArts platform and Cultural Data Profile (CDP). According to the website, "The launch gets them one step closer to their goal of setting a new standard for data collection for the sector and enabling arts and cultural nonprofits to make better decisions by analyzing the data that they input into the CDP. Apart from spending months developing the new technology, DataArts has striven to keep costs low to their users and was able to do so because of a grant by Pew Center for Arts & Heritage."

We are grateful for generous leadership support for the development of the DataArts technology platform, educational resources, and ongoing operations, which has been provided by Bloomberg Philanthropies, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The William Penn Foundation, and The Pew Center for Arts and Heritage.
