The Capacity of Performing Arts Presenting Organizations

Abstract

This report summarizes results from a survey of performing arts presenting organizations in the United States. The study was commissioned by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to supplement an evaluation of its Leadership Presenting Organizations program, and by the Association of Performing Arts Presenters to provide context for a series of presenting organization convocations and to provide a basis for future planning. The research not only captures traditional performing arts presenting organizations, such as performing arts centers, but also includes organizations for which presenting is not the primary mission. Further, in addition to capturing data from freestanding, independently incorporated organizations, the research also focuses on performing arts centers and presenting programs that are hosted by larger organizations, such as universities, local governments, museums, and churches.
