During these one-day sessions, the OAC presented new concepts and methods being developed to bolster public support for the arts in Ohio. We have also begun to document and communicate the public value we provide to the state and you provide to your communities. We will continue to add follow-up information and resources to this web site as they become available.
Over the past two years, the OAC, with guidance from The Wallace Foundation, has examined new ways of identifying and communicating the public value of the arts. These concepts are significant enough for us to involve the arts leadership of the state in a live, interactive presentation. Vital information about how these new concepts that are shaping improvements to the OAC's grantmaking and other agency operations was shared during the Convenings and will continue to be shared through this website. Stay tuned to this page for updated information that includes resources, tools and new strategies for leading your organization through this process during the coming months.
