Why does data matter? The Cultural Data Project (CDP) can help your organization view, analyze, and talk about your internal data in new (and even exciting!) ways. Our training sessions set the groundwork for you to use data thoughtfully and effectively, always with the goal of strengthening your organization’s ability to do what you do best. 

Data + Stories = Impact 
How many times have you told a story about your organization to report out to a board member, recruit volunteers, or apply for a grant? Including the right data point along with your story will help you to make a strong case for your organization. In our hands-on workshop, learn how the CDP’s reporting features can help you combine your organization’s story and data to:

      –   effectively communicate with stakeholders

      –   raise important issues with policymakers.
–   highlight accomplishments for funders

Using examples from real cultural organizations, this interactive session will demonstrate how to use data to support your talking points and illustrate your organization’s impact.

New to the CDP?  Stick around after the workshop for a quick 30 minute orientation to the Cultural Data Project tailored to small organizations. A CDP staff member will be available to walk through the CDP Data Profile and answer any questions.
