Artistic vibrancy: a way for organisations to talk about artistic impact

Arts Evaluation Social impact Public value Cultural industries Cultural policy Australia

This framework is a way for organisations to talk about artistic impact internally and with others. It offers a way to capture the value arts and culture create for the society, economy and community.

The framework identifies five essential dimensions of an artistically healthy arts organisation. An artistically vibrant arts organisation:

  • supports the development of great art
  • creates pathways for artists to become great
  • engages with audiences
  • connects with communities
  • contributes to a vibrant society and culture

The framework offers arts organisations:

  • a language for communicating about artistic matters with non-artists, such as boards and funders
  • processes for gathering genuinely useful, internal and external feedback about the artistic impact of the organisation
  • a pathway for reflection and change, so that organisations can remain relevant to their stakeholders and contemporary life
