Research and Documentation

In February 2015, ArtPlace announced a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a National Research and Documentation Consultant for the CDI program.

In April 2015, ArtPlace America selected PolicyLink to lead this work.

As a consulting partner to ArtPlace, PolicyLink will not conduct an evaluation of the CDI program itself, but rather will work collaboratively with ArtPlace staff, partners, and funded projects throughout the program’s duration to harvest the knowledge gained, lessons learned, and impacts observed when arts and cultural strategies are deployed in service of comprehensive community development and planning goals.
