Starting this year Chorus America members will complete the Chorus Operations Survey through the DataArts platform. The deadline to complete the Chorus Operations Survey: 2016-2017 Season is Thursday, January 11.
DataArts, formerly the Cultural Data Project, was founded to bring the language and leverage of data to the business of culture. The Cultural Data Profile (CDP) is DataArts’ flagship service, which thousands of cultural nonprofits use annually to report their financial and programmatic information. DataArts seeks to be a catalyst for data-informed decision-making.

By completing a CDP, your organization will have access to a suite of analytic tools to help you better assess capacity, manage day-to-day operations, and plan for the future. Your participation will also enable DataArts to provide the cultural community with consistent, reliable, and comprehensive data on the arts and culture sector.
DataArts provides informative training sessions and resources for organizations on how to participate, as well as a Support Center to answer any questions. You are strongly encouraged to register for an online or in-person orientation session and review the DataArts online resources.
