"What is needed is a framework within which to understand the lessons of others and to design successful strategies for any circumstance." The strategic framework for arts participation can be helpful in clarifying your participation-building goals and the strategies best suited for meeting them: strategies that are smart, effective and more likely to produce sustainable results.
