DataArts, the web-based platform for centralized collection and dissemination of financial and programmatic data for and about the nation’s cultural nonprofits, announced a new online Management Center designed to support arts professionals’ use of data for planning, advocating and decision-making. The Management Center’s intuitive technology, self-service dashboard, and easy-to-interpret data visualizations and reports, allows professionals in the $41.5 billion nonprofit arts and cultural sector to access, analyze, and share critical business performance information across workgroups within their organizations and with external audiences including boards, funders, policymakers, and constituents.
“The Management Center takes the DataArts platform to the next level by providing a streamlined, highly effective tool for arts and culture organizations, their funders, and advocates to make better informed decisions and use data effectively to communicate the value of arts and culture,” said Beth Tuttle, President and CEO of DataArts. “We are proud to be at the forefront of bringing the language and leverage of data to the business of culture.”
DataArts represents nearly 15,000 arts and cultural nonprofits that submit an annual Cultural Data Profile (CDP), creating a rich, reliable aggregated dataset about their activities and contributions.
