Our Work

How can arts and culture help build caring, capable and equitable communities?

We respond in four key areas:

TRAINING

across

community

sectors

TRAINING

Professional development for artists and their community partners  is a core element of the Center’s work. We emphasizes collaborative curriculum design and cross-sector learning. Collaborative design creates training content that is both community specific and community sensitive. This approach helps builds sustained partnerships among artist professionals and partners from other sectors.

EVALUATING

arts-based

community

development

RESEARCH & EVALUATION

The Center has over 30 years-experience helping our clients learn and grow from their work.  Our stud­ies have helped our partners communicate their effectivenss and  build community trust and accountability. We approach this work as both evaluators and  researchers.  Our process is designed to be efficient, credible, and unobtrusive.  Most importantly, we leave clients with research/evaluation systems that can be used for or both current and future initiatives.
