SMART Growth is a 4-year capacity building program designed to ensure that grantee organizations benefit from sound management practices that effectively support their art and ensure their resilience through economic shifts, staff transitions, and evolving markets.
It’s hard to enough to balance the choices you make about the art and the commerce sides of your organization when you’re strapped for time and cash. It’s even harder to make fundamental behavioral changes when you know they’re needed. For an arts organization to stay relevant and viable you need to make smart, data-driven decisions and make changes based on strong foundational evidence, not whim. In this digital age there’s a real opportunity to use analytics to inform the planning process, the artistic product, the pricing and more accurately predict audience behavior. At this workshop, you’ll hear from organizations that are using data to be more strategic decision-makers about their overall programming and brand.
