Members will be interested to read a new report on participatory arts, prepared by WolfBrown for The James Irvine Foundation.

Getting In On the Act: How arts groups are creating opportunities for active participation draws insight from more than 100 nonprofit arts groups, including five League members, and other experts in the field.

This carries profound implications and fresh opportunities for the nonprofit arts sector. You can find the report at
