The Canada Council for the Arts has shared the findings from two recent sector reports from their series on Understanding Canadian Arts Through CADAC Data.
The reports were prepared by the Canada Council's Research, Evaluation and Performance Measurement Section in collaboration with the Media Arts Section, and highlight CADAC (Canadian Arts Data / Données sur les arts au Canada) facts on a sampling of Presentation organizations and Production centres across Canada. CADAC is a web-based application dedicated to the collection, dissemination and analysis of financial and statistical information about Canadian arts organizations. Using CADAC data, the reports provide a picture of Canada Council-funded media arts presenters and production centres, their activities and organizational stability.
