The Arizona Cultural Data Project is a powerful online management tool designed to strengthen arts and cultural organizations. This groundbreaking project gathers reliable, longitudinal data on the arts and culture sector. The Arizona Commission on the Arts, along with a number of other participating funders in the state of Arizona, makes use of the Arizona Cultural Data Project as part of the grant application process.

Impact: Arts and Culture in Arizona

Impact: Arts and Culture in Arizona” was developed by the Arizona Cultural Data Project Task Force to provide a greater understanding of the breadth and impact of Arizona’s arts and culture sector.

At the time the brochure was initiated in late 2012, 219 nonprofit arts and culture organizations had contributed audited financial data to the Arizona Cultural Data Project (AZ CDP), representing less than half of active organizations in Arizona’s arts and culture sector. As more organizations engage in the statewide project, the sector’s comprehensive impact will come more clearly into focus.

Cord Moorhead of Moorhead Creative and Diana Hickman of Hickman Communications served as the design and development team for “Impact: Arts and Culture in Arizona.” To request copies of the brochure, contact the Arts Commission at (602) 771-6501.
