Arts and heritage plays an important role in enhancing the vitality of communities and promoting a strong sense of identity, belonging, and well-being for Canadians. We have helped clients to understand various needs and gaps in the sector, including the need to preserve spaces, create new spaces and content, and respond to the evolving demographic and cultural landscape in Canada. While the needs are great, we also recognize that there is limited public sector funding available and cost can be a significant barrier to accessing arts and heritage experiences for many Canadians.
Our services in the arts and heritage sector have included conducting program evaluations, including discussion panels with preeminent arts and heritage experts, in-depth case studies of national cultural institutions, and interviews with arts and heritage leaders, creators, and supporters across the country.
Examples of recent arts and heritage projects include:
Program evaluation of Canadian Heritage’s Canada Arts Training Fund; and Program evaluation of Canadian Heritage’s Arts Policy Branch programs, including the Canada Arts Presentation Fund, Canada Cultural Spaces Fund, and Canada Cultural Investment Fund.
