We play well with others. In fact, one of the things we enjoy most is the chance to collaborate with talented fellow researchers and consultants in arts & culture. Here are just a few of our favorite partners, who complement our own team and affiliates in exciting ways:
Alan S. Brown’s cutting-edge audience studies have shaped the international dialogue on the values and impacts of arts participation. We’re proud to work with Alan and his WolfBrown colleagues to extend our respective research capacities on behalf of cultural clients. We also highly recommend the firm's strategic planning work for cultural organizations, led by Joe Kluger.
From Harvard University to the San Francisco Opera, KublerWirka's strategic planning and consulting services help leading institutions anticipate and respond to change. The Boston-based firm provides intensive support in areas such as leadership and governance, resource planning, fundraising strategy, and organizational development.
Campbell & Company
Universities and cultural organizations across the U.S. and overseas turn to Campbell & Company for savvy fundraising counsel and management of capital campaigns, annual funds, and other development programs. We’re proud to help Campbell create new knowledge about donors at all levels, from basic membership to major gifts.
The Cultural Policy Center at the University of Chicago
One of the nation's leading centers of interdisciplinary academic research on arts & culture issues, the Cultural Policy Center blends theoretical, analytical, and practical perspectives to advance knowledge and increase the sustainability of the cultural sector. Slover Linett enjoys an ongoing collaboration with the CPC and helped develop some of its major research initiatives.
We also work with gifted individual consultants and small teams around the field, such as Tom Shapiro (strategy and planning), Mary Ellen Munley (community engagement), Mary Trudel and Rory MacPherson (communications strategy), Cecilia Garibay (exhibit and program evaluation). and Wendy Luke (organizational development).
For research with ethnically-specific audiences, non-English speakers, children, and other populations requiring special credentials or methods, we turn to specialists in those areas.
We look forward to introducing you to the right partners at the right time. Because sometimes it does take a village.
