This brief examines how partnerships among cultural institutions with vastly different financial resources, audiences, and levels of professionalization were used to enlarge cultural participation as part of The Wallace Foundation's Community Partnerships for Cultural Participation (CPCP) initiative. Lessons learned from these 10 large-small CPCP partnerships can help other cultural institutions evaluate the benefits and challenges of such partnerships and design and conduct more successful collaborations.
