Description:

Arts organizations collect all kinds of data, often at the request of their funders. Too often, this information is used just to complete grant reports, a missed opportunity to use data to deepen and enrich practice. How might arts organizations change this dynamic, so that the data they work so hard to collect can be used to inform practice and to keep funders happy?  In this hands-on session, you’ll learn:

  • An easy-to-use process to identify key organizational questions
  • How to make the most of existing data to answer those mission-critical questions
  • Creative methods to collect information from your audiences.
