Strategic Plan 2019-2024
We are pleased to share with you our strategic plan. We spent the summer reflecting on the discussions that took place at the opening symposium, getting feedback from our advisory board, and using what we heard to figure out our priorities for the next five years.

2019 Research Workshop
2019 Research Workshop
We held the inaugural Research Workshop the day following the opening symposium. Workshop participants gave paper presentations on the topic of “Program and Policy Evaluation in the Arts.” The papers covered issues around diversity, equity, and inclusion programs at museums, higher education and the arts, media literacy programs for adolescent girls, cultural planning, and K-12 arts education. The papers are under review and after revisions will appear in a special issue of the journal Cultural Trends in late 2019/early 2020.

2019 Research Workshop
