Arts + Culture

The arts and culture sector is in a period of incredible diversification—in terms of the disciplines, formats, and traditions represented, as well as the communities producing and engaging with the arts. Many public and private arts funders are especially concerned with how to support arts organizations in fostering cultural participation and taking artistic risks.

At Harder+Company, we apply our research, strategy, and community engagement skills to help the arts and culture field become more sustainable and connected to the public. We assist arts funders in examining the organizational effectiveness of arts nonprofits, assess diversity and equity in arts funding and capacity building, measure the impact of audience and community engagement strategies, and assess leadership development for arts organizations.
