SUPPORTING ART ADVANCING CULTURE

REPORT TO O THE COMMUNITY


“GCAC funding has provided MadLab the opportunity to take risks to develop long-running and successful programs such as Theatre Roulette and the Young Writers Short Play Festival, the only festival in Central Ohio dedicated to local high school playwrights. GCAC has always been not just a champion of small and large arts organizations, but THE champion.” Andy Batt, Managing Director

“The award has been critical to me as an artist. The funding allows the art to happen; for ‘Kings, Queens, & In-Betweens,’ the GCAC grant means that I am able to fully focus on the work and that I’m able to hire the other needed artists to help do it in Columbus. Additionally, to have the support of GCAC meaningfully behind me is important as an artist, giving this project a stamp of support.” Gabrielle Burton Director/Producer, Five Sisters Productions

Letter from the President and Board Chair This past year has been exciting for the Greater Columbus Arts Council (Arts Council). Increased funding from the city has helped the Arts Council continue to lead the way for sustainable art and culture in Central Ohio. Through advocacy, funding, expertise and collaboration we strategically allocate public funds to the arts; help artists, educators and arts organizations to thrive; and find ways to connect the arts and artists to the community. 2013 accomplishments included: • $700,000 increased funding from the city’s reformulation of the hotel/ motel bed tax. The Arts Council understands how important public support is to the vitality of our arts community. In 2014, we plan to continue to explore additional funding opportunities so that we can build an even more vibrant creative community in Columbus. • A 24.5 percent increase in community funding to artists and arts organizations and five new grant programs. • The 2013 Columbus Arts Festival was the most successful in the Arts Council’s history with nearly 450,000 people in attendance and more than $200,000 raised for arts programming in Central Ohio. • In collaboration with the Columbus Cultural Leadership Consortium, the Arts Council embarked on a marketing and branding campaign for the arts sector that will focus on building awareness and engagement from patrons, donors and corporate and community partners in 2014. • First ever evaluation of multi-year data from the Ohio Cultural Data Project revealing that on top of consistent efficiencies in administration, 23 of the Arts Council’s Operating Support organizations realized an 18.7 percent increase in attendance and an 18 percent increase in earned revenue between 2009-2012. The Greater Columbus Arts Council could not provide successful leadership and support to artists and arts and cultural organizations in Columbus without the support of Mayor Michael B. Coleman, Columbus City Council, the Ohio Arts Council, Experience Columbus, The Columbus Foundation, the Human Service Chamber, and all of the businesses and individuals who recognize the importance of arts and culture to our quality of life and our economic prosperity. Please join us as we work together to create a vibrant Columbus.

“Being awarded the artist residency for Dresden, Germany was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me.  The Dresden residency gave me my time back. Time to think. Time to experiment.  Time to look. Time to wonder. I thank the Arts Council for giving me that wonderful gift of time.” Susan Li O'Connor, Individual Artist

Connecting Audiences with the Arts ColumbusArts.com, a service of the Arts Council, is a free guide to all cultural events and arts organizations in Central Ohio, and a hub of nearly 1,000 artists in five disciplines: visual, music, dance, theatre and literature; one of a few free multidisciplinary directories in the country. We further build audiences for the arts through cooperative marketing partnerships. We partner with CD102.5 through bi-weekly radio interviews where we share current arts events and happenings; the Columbus Arts Marketing Association; Columbus Underground, which hosts our bi-weekly column featuring an inside look at the Columbus art scene; Columbus Young Professionals Club, and bi-weekly columns in their e-newsletter which reaches a membership of more than 20,000 young professionals; and WOSU Public Media, which broadcasts Broad & High (formerly ArtZine) to more 4.1 million viewers annually, an audience that has been growing each year.

“Second-generation immigrants and refugees who have grown up in America are now interested in learning about their parents’ and grandparents’ art and culture! Participants now feel proud of their heritage and have increased confidence! Thank you GCAC for making Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services’ Enkutatash possible!” Laura Berger, Director of Development

Through cooperative marketing partnerships, monthly newsletters, media outreach, and website and Facebook promotions, we are continually promoting artists and arts organizations. And with our network of more than 12,000 Facebook fans and Twitter followers, we are continuing the conversation about the arts every day. In 2013 the Arts Council redesigned its website to help people find information faster and provide more in-depth resources.

“Support from the Greater Columbus Arts Council BOOST fund has enabled the supporters of Green Lawn Abbey to formulate a development plan that will strengthen the organization’s board. GCAC support and guidance has come at a crucial time as this effort is raising awareness in the local creative community.”   Kate Matheny, Board Member Green Lawn Abbey Preservation Association 19


COLLABORATION

ACTING AS A CONVENER OF IDEAS, OF PEOPLE AND THE ARTS To continue to fuel the dynamic arts scene in Central Ohio, we are actively bringing together entities from a broad cross section of the community to share resources, expertise and perspectives. Some of these partnerships and opportunities include: power2give.org: The Greater Columbus Arts Council’s new crowdfunding platform, developed by the Arts and Sciences Council in Charlotte, NC. The program launched in October with $60,000 in matching funds and 36 projects. Seven projects have been fully funded to date. Columbus Health Department: The ArtWalks program highlights public art in 13 Columbus neighborhoods. Both printed and online maps are available to encourage people to explore our city’s neighborhoods. Artist Fellowship and Award partnerships: With the Columbus Museum of Art,

“The CapPride Band’s participation in the power2give.org project far exceeded our expectations. We were able to access an online giving tool that otherwise would have been cost prohibitive. The partnership with GCAC, the ability to reach a greater audience, expand our donor pool AND generate revenue to purchase musical instruments all within 30 days made for one of our most successful fundraising campaigns to date!”

Hanley Award, presented by the Columbus Arts Endowment, is a $10,000 award given to an artist who has demonstrated a high level of achievement while working at least five years in the arts in any discipline. In September, our fifth annual award honored dancer and educator Susan Van Pelt Petry.
