The Arizona Commission on the Arts will be hosting DataArts’ (formerly Cultural Data Project/CDP) upcoming workshops in October and November throughout Arizona. These free workshops are geared toward assisting arts and culture organizations better understand and utilize data collection and reporting. Two tracks will be offered: an orientation to the DataArts platform and a hands-on session on using data reports to communicate your message.

Why does data matter?

DataArts can help your organization view, analyze, and talk about your internal data in new (and even exciting!) ways. Our training workshops set the groundwork for you to use data thoughtfully and effectively, always with the goal of strengthening your organization’s ability to do what it does best: provide high-quality arts and cultural experiences.

NEW! DataArts Analytics Overview

In this session, we’ll focus on putting your data to use after it’s been entered into the Cultural Data Profile (CDP). Learn how to use free tools from DataArts and our partners to: analyze trends in your data, benchmark against peer organizations, and gain insight into your work with metrics. This session is ideal if your organization is up and running with DataArts and you’re ready to delve into our reporting tools, although new users are also welcome. By registering for this event, you are opting into receiving emails from DataArts. You can unsubscribe from this list at any time.

NEW! Building Blocks for Financial Health Workshop

In this workshop, explore two elements of financial health: understanding and applying financial metrics, and financial planning in support of strategic goals. You will apply these concepts in small groups with practice scenarios, and learn about additional financial tools and educational resources available from DataArts. This workshop will help you build your understanding of non-profit financial concepts and connect them to management practices.
