From the Field

Theatre Communications Group Impact Report

The Theatre Communications Group (TCG) has published a report celebrating its 58 years representing the theatre field. TCG Impact Report: 58 Years Of Advancing The Theatre Field, documents TCG’s accomplishments in leadership, grant making, advocacy, equity, publishing and research. Learning and education are also areas where TCG has made an impact through its conferences and distance learning programs. TCG is a valuable resource for more than 500 theatres, 10,000 individuals and 247 affiliates.

Qualitative Impact Framework

The Canada Council for the Arts, in conjunction with WolfBrown, created a Qualitative Impact Framework to better understand and articulate the direct and indirect effects of the Council’s programs and services. The framework report provides a blueprint for gathering evidence within five impact areas, from grantees to artistic work and practices to the effects on a broader society. The council also included a development plan as roadmap of measurement approaches to collect and assess impacts from these five areas.

Measuring Folk: Audience Research Initiative 2018-2019

Measuring Folk, a report released by Folk Alliance International, assesses current folk music practices through interviews and a survey of more than 2,000 folk music constituents in North America. The survey of stakeholders, 50% of which were artists, found that many people hold multiple roles in the folk music community. When asked if they valued inclusivity and diversity, respondents overwhelmingly acknowledged their value, but many indicated there was room for improvement within the community.
