Engaging the Future
“Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC) is currently working in partnership with the Cleveland Foundation on its Engaging the Future project. Engaging the Future is an audience development initiative aimed at helping Cleveland’s arts and culture institutions attract nontraditional, diverse audiences to supplement their current base of patrons.
As a component of this initiative, a series of focus groups will be held to help arts and culture organizations gain a deeper understanding of topics such as cultural tastes and venue preferences. I am writing to see if you would be willing to help us spread the word about this opportunity through your network of contacts. If you are willing to help us spread the word, below please find the survey link along with some introductory language:
How do we build the audience of tomorrow for Cleveland’s arts and culture organizations? The Cleveland Foundation is exploring this idea through its audience development initiative called Engaging the Future. As a component of this initiative, a series of interviews will be held in July and August to help arts and culture organizations gain a deeper understanding of emerging cultural tastes among new and existing audiences for arts and culture. If you are interested in being considered for an interview and making your voice heard during this process, the first step is to fill out a brief survey by clicking on the following link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BK235PW. If you are ultimately selected to participate in an interview, you will be compensated for your time in the amount of $50 in cash.
