An independent assessment report written by Nick Rabkin, Peter Linett, and Sarah Lee, A Laboratory for Relevance: Findings and Recommendations from the Arts Innovation Fund, captures valuable lessons about innovation and organizational change. These findings will be of interest to arts organizations of all sizes, as well as funders, consultants, policymakers and others who care about the vibrancy and viability of this sector. 

As a longstanding funder of the arts, The James Irvine Foundation seeks to foster vitality in the field, supporting arts organizations as they navigate a shifting environment. Because of our commitment to advance change, this independent report on the Arts Innovation Fund by Slover Linett struck a meaningful chord for us at Irvine. Although the initiative took place under our previous Arts program strategy, the work and learning it produced in many ways foreshadowed the goals and priorities of our new strategy. -Josephine Ramirez, Arts Program Director, The James Irvine Foundation
