Online Self-Assessment for Arts Organizations

smARTscope® is the Arts & Business Council’s proprietary on-line organizational self-assessment for the arts. This powerful tool helps arts groups pinpoint opportunities for improvement and growth in six major management areas, including:

  • Concept Development & Planning
  • Board Governance
  • Income Generation
  • Financial Management
  • Audience Development & Marketing
  • Staffing & Organizational Structure

The healthy arts organization progresses evenly across these six areas, maintaining stability and resilience while effectively supporting its art. The smARTscope process forms an ideal basis for strategic planning.
