EVENT: Upcoming NEA Webinar for Local Arts Agencies (Sept. 28)

Please join us for this free webinar with Q&A session, on Thursday September 28, 2017 at 1:30pm ET.


Evidence at the Core of the 21st Century Local Arts Agency

Date: Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 1:30pm Eastern Time

The National Endowment for the Arts offers a series of public webinars showcasing evaluation and performance measurement strategies in the arts. This installment will consider two different evidence-based approaches that local arts agencies are taking to re-envision and measure their programs.




The NEA’s deputy director for research & analysis, Patricia Moore Shaffer, introduces the topic of how arts organizations, including local arts agencies, are increasingly using evaluation and performance metrics to hold themselves accountable to the communities they serve. Guest speakers Karen Gahl-Mills of Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and Robert Bush of the Arts & Science Council of Charlotte-Mecklenburg will explain how evidence collection and analysis directly informs their work. Karen Gahl-Mills will discuss how a recently-completed planning initiative (future.cacgrants.org) used data and feedback from local residents to articulate new goals for the organization. Robert Bush will explore how active-listening approaches can elicit and empower community voices, and how measurement tools can assist LAAs in identifying and meeting the needs of community members. A Q&A session will follow.
