What can be done to deepen understanding of the challenges facing arts organisations and how can we best ensure that their artistic and cultural endeavours thrive?
We are pleased to release our latest D'Art report, Support for Major Performing Arts Organisations: Preliminary Report on Definitions and Issues, a first step in our co-hosting a mini-summit on this topic with the Australia Council for the Arts in Adelaide, Australia, in early 2008. The aim of the D’Art is twofold: to identify key senior executives in national arts councils and ministries of culture to take part in the mini-summit; and to identify key themes and issues and develop information resources for the mini-summit. The report outlines preliminary information on definitions of major performing arts organisations adopted by agencies, and a prioritised list of issues identified by the 15 respondents from 14 countries. More information on the mini-summit will be announced later in the year.
In preparaton for the Mini Summit on this topic, respondents were asked to provide the definition (if there was one) of major performing arts organisations used by their agency, and to rank by order of importance a list of issues relating to the support of major performing arts organisations.
