Createquity gave a talk at the University of Chicago’s Cultural Policy Center wherein Ian David Moss, the presenter, outlined the current art research infrastructure, how it is failing us, and what we can do to fix it. A video of the talk is below. In a subsequent blog post, Mr. Moss posits that arts research should directly address the question, what do we actually need to know in order to do our jobs better?
We couldn’t agree with him more. Arts research should directly address pertinent questions necessary to make informed managerial decisions. Our mission at NCAR is to be the leading provider of evidence-based insights that enable arts and cultural leaders to overcome challenges and increase impact.
Therefore, it is critical that we engage in a two-way dialogue with you, our arts professional colleague. What are the biggest questions or challenges facing your organizations? What information would you like to know in order to do your job better?
