The New Orleans Cultural Coalition is made up of seven New Orleans cultural organizations: Ashé Cultural Arts Center, Contemporary Arts Center, Longue Vue House and Gardens, Louisiana State Museum, New Orleans Museum of Art, Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation. The Coalition recognizes that now, more than ever, it is critical for organizations in New Orleans to work together toward the common goals of serving the people and cultures of New Orleans. Through collaborative research and planning the coalition will contribute to maintaining a strong, vibrant cultural sector in New Orleans.
As part of its work the New Orleans Cultural Coalition is conducting a survey of attendance at coalition member institutions, as well as other selected cultural events in the city. The purpose of the survey is to get an up-to-date picture of arts and cultural participation in New Orleans, particularly since Hurricane Katrina. The results of the 2007 Arts and Culture survey will help New Orleans cultural organizations better understand the characteristics and needs of people who currently attend their events and who support their organizations in other ways. The survey results will help organizations make informed decisions about how they can best serve the needs of their current supporters, and the NOLA community in general, going forward. AEA Consulting (AEA) and Princeton Survey Research Associates Intl. (PSRAI) are conducting this survey on behalf of The New Orleans Cultural Coalition with support from a grant from the Getty Foundation in California.
Survey results will be made available to the cultural sector upon completion of the project. For more information, contact the Contemporary Arts Center or email Merit Shalett.
