Arts in Sacred Places PFSP Board Presentation

  1. 1. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Visual and Performing Arts in Sacred Places A research project of Partners for Sacred Places, supported by the Barra Foundation Consultants: • Thaddeus Squire, President, CultureWorks • Marcel Williams Foster, Manager of Special Projects, CultureWorks • David Bradley, Senior Consultant, CultureWorks • Shawn Evans, AIA, Associate, Atkin Olshin Schade Architects, Senior Consultant • Vanessa dela Torre & Rie Yamakawa, Project Interns, University of Pennsylvania
  2. 2. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Opportunity • 70% of arts organizations have budgets <$1 million (“medium” and “small”), and 40% <$250,000 (“small”) • There are more than 200 dance and theatre organizations members of our local service organizations, most operate under $500,000. • 1995 to 2005 median expenses for small organizations rose 124% • Next to programming, “physical plant” is the highest investment among small organizations: $2,614,000 per year as a group Source: “Portfolio 2008,” Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, 2008.
  3. 3. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Goals • To gather information that is useful to individual congregations/arts organizations and indicates the level of current use/relationships. • To determine how to foster deeper partnerships between the sacred community and fine and performing arts community of Philadelphia. • To identify the resources needed to stimulate greater use of sacred space by the arts community.
  4. 4. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Objectives 1. Develop a “Readiness Index” for partnership and space use 2. Create a list of organizations well positioned for partnership 3. Outline new Partners training programs for sacred places 4. Design a program for Partners to facilitate arts use of sacred space 5. Outline a potential funding program to accompany this program
  5. 5. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Long-term Outcomes • Take a Philadelphia pilot project into implementation by 2011 • Expand the project to other parts of Philadelphia • Expand the project nationally to other regions The arts and culture sector and the sacred community are able to support each other more concertedly in the areas of financial and stakeholder development.
  6. 6. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Participants • 43 Center City congregations, small and large and across multiple denominations were invited to participate: 20 in core sample, the balance subject to more restricted investigation. • 32 visual and performing arts organizations operating in Philadelphia were invited, representing dance, music, theatre, multi- arts presenters: 20 in the core sample, with a special case study for visual arts. • Case studies of existing partnerships and feedback from emerging organizations and individual artists.
  7. 7. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Selection • This is a focus-style study and is not meant to be a comprehensive survey of all sacred places and arts organizations. • Participants were selected based on relationships and knowledge developed by Partners and our local arts service organizations. • You don’t need to have participated in the study to benefit from it. The resulting programs will benefit the wider community.
  8. 8. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Process We will be collecting three basic kinds of data: • Physical and Technical Data • Organizational Data • Attitudinal & Leadership We will be collecting this data through: • On-Site Interviews (with organizational leaders) • Electronic Surveys (administered to congregants/audiences)
  9. 9. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Physical & Technical Data (Sacred Places) • Historical & Building Information/Code • Space Types & Frequency of Use (including current arts use) • Space Size & Capacity • Controlled Access • Accessibility (ADA) • Visitor Amenities (transportation, parking, restrooms,etc.) • Production Amenities & Equipment • Physical Condition, Hazards, & Use Restrictions
  10. 10. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Physical & Technical Data (Arts Organizations) • Space Needs & Frequency of Use • Programming Capacity • Technical Accessibility & Artist Amenity Needs • Production Amenities & Technical Needs • Current Use of Sacred Space • Priority Needs (general)
  11. 11. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Organizational & Receptivity Data (both groups) • Financial Information • Personnel & Volunteers • Operations & Planning • Values & Perceptions • Strength/Clarity of Leadership
  12. 12. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Audience & Congregation Data (E-Survey) We will ask a series of questions about the values, perceptions, and demographics of both congregations and arts organizations. We will also ask questions of both congregants and audience members about priorities, barriers/benefits of attending arts events/sacred places.
  13. 13. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Readiness Index Organizational Capacity Physical/Technical Capacity Receptivity Capacity
  14. 14. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Preliminary Findings: Attitudes/Receptivity • There is great interest in partnership and needs fulfillment among both artist organizations and faith-based communities. • Most sacred places cite mission and the need to reach out and build awareness for their work as the main reasons to want to partner, not financial gain. • Most arts organization cite audience development, and an identification of similar mission (“the human soul”) as the reason for partnership. • There are complex value perception dynamics among faith
  15. 15. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Preliminary Findings: Organization/Operations • There is deficit of human resources, tech expertise, and financial capacity on both sides of the equation (arts organizations and sacred places). • There is a lack of shared language, understanding of organizational dynamics/politics, as well as basic needs and operating “cultures.” • There are no standards of cost/value among sacred places, and it is a very difficult to negotiate financial relationships; sacred space is under- valued. • There are few processes and frameworks for talking about content and
  16. 16. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Preliminary Findings: Physical/Technical • There is a wealth of under-utilized sacred space in and a fair amount of arts use of that space, but nothing close to maximizing potential. • There is a lack in most sacred spaces of key technical outfitting, spatial flow, and ADA/code compliance needed for greater cultural use. • There is a fair potential for multi-space use (administration, rehearsal, performance, etc.) and availability is generally high. • Overall condition of spaces and readiness for modest capital investments (physical and technical) is relatively high.
  17. 17. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. What is the solution? 1. Training Program for Arts & Sacred Communities • Creates a “portfolio” of sacred spaces & arts organizations 2. Shared Management Structure @ Partners’ Office: • FT Program Director (program mgmt & facilitation) • Supported by contractors (tech dir., crew, site liaisons) • Functions: marketing, vetting, contracting, technical, etc. 3. Rental Subsidy Program • Rental re-granting program for members modeled on Dance/UP 4. Capital Grants Program • For technical outfitting and cultural use space improvements
  18. 18. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Financial Assumptions & Sustainability Training Program • One-time development cost • Ongoing operations offset by fees Shared Management Structure @ Partners’ Office: • Two-year ramp-up off-set by funding • Ongoing operations off-set by membership and transaction fees Rental Subsidy Program • Available per fundraising; highly attractive “triple bottom line” Capital Grants Program • Available per fundraising; joint development with New Dollars?
  19. 19. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. New Futures… Every arts organization that so desires can find a home in Philadelphia… Every sacred space in Philadelphia teams with people engaging in lives of faith and cultural experience…
