About DataArts

DataArts, formerly the Cultural Data Project, was founded to bring the language and leverage of data to the business of culture. DataArts empowers the nonprofit arts and cultural sector with high-quality data and resources in order to strengthen its vitality, performance, and public impact.

In 2016, DataArts launched an innovative technology platform to host its flagship service, the Cultural Data Profile (CDP), which thousands of cultural nonprofits complete annually to report on their finances and programmatic activities as a standardized part of grant applications to hundreds of participating grantmaker partners nationwide.

The Partner Solutions team provides support and service to public funding agencies, private foundation partners, and national service organizations helping them derive maximum value from their participation in the system. DataArts will further develop the tech-savvy applicant’s knowledge and skills by providing technical training in its proprietary data collection and reporting systems.
