The New Jersey State Council on the Arts is in the midst of a formal strategic planning process, where every area of our work will be evaluated, including operations, policies, services, and grantmaking. We are building on the strides already taken toward achieving greater balance, and ultimately a more diversified, broader, positive impact, and we need your input as part of the process.
The Arts Council has engaged AMS Planning & Research, a national arts management consulting firm, to provide support in developing our next strategic plan. AMS has developed a survey to gain insight from arts organizations, artists, arts workers, audiences, and community members statewide – insight about access to and impact of Council programs and services. We are striving to reach a broad representation of respondents, regardless of history of engagement with the Council. The more information we gather, the better chance we have at improving our services in the right ways.
This is one important piece of our strategic planning work, and we can’t do it without you.
