CultureSource Initiates Research to
Advance the Cultural Sector

We must embrace contemporary culture at its core and edges. This is written into the CultureSource guiding principles and is core to our efforts to provide timely and relevant research to understand the core being of our field as well as the newest advancements that are not yet understood.

We regularly engage in practices of research and learning in order to build field knowledge and enhance our work of convening and grantmaking. In our portfolio of research activities, we are part of a research lab and have partnerships with arts research firms locally and nationally.
