Ransom

Organized by Suzanne Connor, Senior Program Officer, Chicago Community Trust.

Presented by Suzanne Connor, Senior Program Officer, Chicago Community Trust; and Lisa Tylke, Consultant, Arts & Business Council of Chicago.

A unique assessment tool known as smARTscope underpins a proven methodology that builds the capacity of small arts and cultural organizations. With your smart phones, you will get to test-drive the tool and learn how the Chicago Community Trust pairs it with general operating support and coaching to address lagging management areas and strengthen resilience. We will share both short and long-term evaluation results, along with the philosophy of SMART Growth.
