Many arts and cultural organizations across the US have made long-term commitments to being more inclusive, more diverse, and more equitable.

Each organization charts its own path down this road based on its unique community, resources, and sense of purpose. Little is known, however, about how audiences feel about this work, and this is why I’m writing you today.

Numerous arts organizations in our area are participating in the study, and we apologize if today you receive more than one request to take the survey. Please only respond to the organization you most recently attended.
