DataArts for Advocates

At DataArts, we recognize the power of data to inform, illuminate and persuade. Data is essential to tell the story of the arts and culture sector's contributions and impact. Learn more about DataArts. 

Introducing your one-click solution

DataArts offers access to an unparalleled longitudinal dataset, including financial, programmatic and operational information from thousands of cultural nonprofits. An essential resource for a range of research studies, the data also provides advocates the evidence to make a more powerful case for the value and impact of the arts.

The DataArts Advocacy Report  is a subscription service that gives policy and funding advocates access to the dataset and  the tools they need to build a powerful, persuasive, fact-based case that communicates the reach and impact of the arts at various community levels. Subscribers can filter analyses to highlight sector subsets by budget size, artistic discipline or communities served, and produce customized reports for conversations with civic leaders at the federal, congressional, state legislatures and city council levels.
