New report on needs of arts organizations outside Chicago

Arts Organization Needs Study

In collaboration with the Illinois Arts Council and the Arts & Business Council of Chicago, SloverLinett Strategies conducted a multi‚Äźphase Arts Organization Needs Study focused on Chicago-area arts organizations. Conducted in late 2011 and early 2012, the study was designed to provide local arts service organizations (ASOs) with fresh insight and tools to help arts organizations chart new paths toward sustainability and success in a rapidly changing context.

This summer, the McLean County Arts Center, in partnership with the Illinois Arts Council, worked with SloverLinett Strategies to gauge the relevance of the needs, challenges, and solutions identified in this initiative to the arts communities in other regions of Illinois.  This brief report is a complement to the Chicago report, highlighting the findings of this statewide research effort.
