National Center for Arts Research
Using cutting edge technology, the National Center for Arts Research has merged all available data on U.S. arts and cultural organizations and mined it for insights. The results will be used to provide — free of charge — information and collaborative solutions to some of the most challenging problems facing arts leaders, along with tools to enable them to diagnose their own organizations’ strengths and weaknesses.
