Books, Reports, Guides and Recent Writings

By giving voice to artists and to the leadership that support them, we raise visibility for current issues and artists’ vision, illuminate national trends, and offer models for local communities. The firm has produced a wide variety of publications — from a leading text on performing arts evaluation to key reports with national service organizations and associations. 

Bravo, Suzanne Callahan, for writing a comprehensive guide to arts evaluation that clarifies the process for arts and cultural organizations and pushes the evaluation conversation further.

Singing Our Praises

Honored by the American Evaluation Association, Suzanne Callahan’s book Singing Our Praises received the AEA’s sole national award for a publication in 2005. The book demystifies evaluation by highlighting examples of how arts presenters have used it to learn about their success.

Published Reports and Other Books

Peruse reports and books on national trends in the arts field, from funding progress to national gatherings. Based on the strength of the finding and the validity of recommendations, many of our clients have opted to publish or widely disseminate the reports and plans we developed for them.


Look to a variety of tools that have helped arts practitioners evaluate their programs and strengthen their case for support. Written specifically for artists and arts organizations, they increase skills and understanding in these crucial areas that affect funding, evaluation, and management. They are designed to orient new staff, refresh the memory of more seasoned arts professionals, or distribute as training materials to board members.
