Why Research?

Our research at Assembly for the Arts can help you understand Cleveland’s arts industries. We’ve spent over twenty years tracking arts and culture and building solutions for challenges the sector faces. We look for trends, we highlight best practices, we engage partners and make connections across disciplines and within the broader community.

This research can also help you articulate the value of your work as you apply for grants, appeal to business investors or simply talk to people about what you do. If you are looking for support you can sift through the many outstanding organizations in Northeast Ohio and elsewhere designed to support you in each of these sections.
