The Data Task Force began in January 2022 in response to members’ concerns about funders’ increasing demands for data that didn’t necessarily correspond with organizations’ own data needs. The three initial objectives of the group were: to educate ourselves about data – useful for funders and the group; to find a shareable software data collection tool that is flexible/modular and can allow us to gather and present data in as unified and flexible a way as possible; and to find professional assistance – perhaps a consultant to assist us in understanding, interpreting, and presenting the data we have. The group has met 12 times on Zoom, including meeting with Liz Shapiro (CT Office of Arts) and Scott Wands (CT Humanities), and has had two demonstrations of the Apricot data collection software. These meetings will continue as needed. To find out more, or to join the group contact David Green at firstname.lastname@example.org
