Just as our pulse rates can be monitored as basic measures of health throughout our lifetimes, regular measurement of financial, human and infrastructure resources helps track our arts and culture sector’s health and momentum.
In Culture Pulse 2014, Arts Cleveland (formerly Community Partnership for Arts and Culture) leveraged 2010-2012 data from the Cultural Data Project on a sample of 96 arts and culture nonprofits in Cuyahoga County. For additional benchmarking this year, Culture Pulse 2014 compares Cuyahoga County with seven other counties on measures such as revenues, expenses and other financial and organizational indicators.
This report illuminates the ways arts and culture organizations are responding to, and evolving in light of, changing environmental factors. Understanding such trends is an important step in strengthening and sustaining this vital asset for generations to come.
