Arts and cultural data are used to achieve real policy results, to improve planning and management of cultural organizations, and to support thoughtful program planning and decision making by grantmakers. Using the Cultural Data Project and other sources, funders are making informed decisions about strategic frameworks and individual grant applications. Join national, regional, and local funders to discuss how new sources of data are enhancing our understanding of the arts and cultural sector’s impact and evolving our philanthropic practice.
