Informing Cultural Policy: The Research and Information Infrastructure _POPULAR

AuthorJ. Mark Davidson Schuster
ISBN: 0882851748
Description: In 1999, The Pew Charitable Trusts launched an initiative to foster broader public appreciation of non-profit arts and culture and its role in American society. This initiative, "Optimizing America's Cultural Resources", was largely premised on the idea that the develoopment of supportive cultural policies depended on providing more and better information on arts and culture to policymakers.
In "Informing Cultural Policy", international cultural policy scholar and researcher J. Mark Schuster relates the findings of a study that toook him from North America to both Eastern and Western Europe. His taxonomy organizes the array of reserach and information models operating abroad into a logical framework for understanding how the myriad cultural agencies collect, analyze, and dis-seminate cultural policy data. Schuster discusses priavte- and public-sector models including reserach divisions of government cultural funding agencies, national statistics agencies, independent nonprofit research institutes, government-designated university-based research centers, private consulting firms, cultural "observatories", noninstitutional networks, research programs, and publications. For each case study undertaken, the author provides the Internet address, names and information for key contacts, and background documents consulted.
