Funding for Arts; Growing Arts Audiences

Funding for Arts Month
October is Funding for Arts Month at the Foundation Center! Throughout the month, take advantage of the special events, classes, and Web resources available to help artists and nonprofit arts organizations become better grantseekers; network with fellow artists and colleagues; and gain insights into what's happening in your local arts funding community. For more information or to register for programs, visit the October calendar for the Foundation Center library nearest you — Atlanta, Cleveland, New York City, San Francisco, or Washington, D.C.
Growing Arts Audiences - FREE report
Arts groups can widen their audiences by improving their marketing, expanding their use of technology, and doing more audience research, the report Arts for All: Connecting to New Audiences (24 pages, PDF) finds. The report came out of a recent conference hosted by the New York City-based Wallace Foundation in which experts from the arts and other fields gathered to share ideas about how arts groups can be more successful at building audience participation.
