Statistical indicators for arts policy [Recurs electrònic] : Discussion paperPublisher: [Sydney] : IFACCA (International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies), 2004Description: 30 p.Online resources: Accés al document Summary: There has been much work done on improving cultural policy-related statistics, in particular the development of ‘cultural indicators’. Statistical indicators are the ‘hard’ evidence that support qualitative indicators of arts policy - the descriptions and narratives that policymakers use to understand, evaluate and communicate the importance and effectiveness of their policies and programs. The need for better cultural statistics and improved cultural statistical indicators has resonated throughout the information-sharing activities of the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA), and has involved us in a number of statistics-related projects. In April 2004, at its meeting in Washington DC, USA, the board of IFACCA discussed a preliminary paper on cultural indicators drafted by the secretariat. Board members reported on work being done on indicators in their own countries, discussed a variety of issues and how IFACCA might best focus its own efforts in this area. The board reinforced the importance of indicators to arts supporters around the world and agreed to the publication of this discussion paper as a contribution to the global effort to develop more robust statistical indicators for arts policy monitoring and evaluation. In this paper, we identify current global resources and work being undertaken on the development of cultural indicators, discuss a number of analytical and coordination issues relating to current work, and make suggestions for future directions. We also summarise IFACCA’s work on indicators and provide an overview of the cultural indicators literature.
