Thank you to everyone that participated in our Cultural Field Survey! In an effort to establish a more comprehensive snapshot of the health and concerns of the field, the Council launched the Cultural Field Survey this year, 2016. As a funder, we have been a long time believer of using data to better inform decisions. This survey is designed to complement the existing data available from DataArts, GuideStar, and Foundation Center — the three primary data sources used in the cultural field.
