Building to Last: A Review of the Canada Council for the Art’s Capacity Building Initiative (2010)

This evaluation of a ten-year initiative to build capacity in equity arts organizations included an extensive national and international literature review of capacity building models; analysis of funding trends; an on-line survey of arts organizations; focus groups; and informant interviews with selected stakeholders. A key component of the study was the identification of future policy directions. The Canada Council has since broadened the scope of its equity initiative, including strategies to provide support for disability arts.
