SMU DataArts Mission
To empower arts and cultural leaders with high-quality data and evidence-based resources and insights that help them to overcome challenges and increase impact.

DataArts began in Pennsylvania as the Cultural Data Project in 2004. It was a collaborative venture of visionary funders and arts advocates with a sweeping goal: to address a longstanding need for detailed, reliable information on nonprofit arts, culture, and humanities organizations, and by doing so, strengthen management, philanthropy, research, and public policy.

By 2013, the data collection and reporting effort, then housed within The Pew Charitable Trusts, had been replicated in 13 states and Washington, With the generous transition support of Bloomberg Philanthropies, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, The Kresge Foundation, William Penn Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, the CDP became an independent nonprofit organization.

In 2016, guided by a refined mission and a new strategy, the Cultural Data Project became DataArts. Thename reflects an evolution beyond data collection and reporting to something bigger: advancing a new field of practice and sharing resources for data-savvy cultural leadership in the twenty-first century.
