For SMU DataArts, 2022 was a year of introspection and evolution as we embraced a new mission and three-year strategy which will guide our work through 2023 and beyond. It was also a year of broadening and strengthening meaningful connections across the sector through presentations and online trainings, research projects and reports, and our data collection partnerships.
As we begin this new year, we look forward to applying the lessons that have emerged from the upheaval of the last few years and dedicating our efforts to providing the insights that communities and individuals need to build strong, vibrant, and equitable arts communities.
Arts and cultural organizations maintained steady growth in contributed revenue early in the pandemic, and they managed to do so while spending less on fundraising, thereby increasing their efficiency.
