Register for this Workshop and Town Hall - Tuesday, April 22, 2014

The Cultural Data Project recently released a new report, New Data Directions for the Cultural Landscape: Toward a Better-Informed, Stronger Sector, which offers an assessment of the state of data collection and use in the arts and cultural sector. The report reflects the views of 11 nationally recognized cultural researchers and presents a set of recommendations to the field for moving toward a more strategic, coordinated approach to developing new knowledge and information resources that improve the sector's performance, vitality, and public impact. We now need your help to take the next step: translating this report into action.

To join the conversation, we invite you to participate in a workshop and town hall with other arts and cultural practitioners, organizational managers, researchers, and grantmakers from your local community. In this first of a series of conversations to be held across the country, you will be asked to share your views, respond to the report's findings, and help identify what challenges are most urgent within your community. We will review the proposed solutions and develop action strategies that will have the most impact in addressing the challenges you identified.

We ask that all attendees read the executive summary from the New Data Directions report, available here, before the event.

Event Details:
Tuesday, April 22, 3:00pm - 5:00pm CT
Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington Street
1st Floor Garland Room

Light refreshments will be served.
