This is the online home for CultureSource. We are a professional association comprised of 115+ organizations serving the region as nonprofit enterprises for the arts and culture.
We work to advance the missions and works of each of our members by helping them connect with new people and audiences, with each other, and with new opportunities.
How do arts organizations benefit from data collection? We submit our organizational information to DataArts (formerly the Cultural Data Project) each year, but then what? What do these numbers and statistics tell us about our impact, about how our programs and performances affect the community?

For the past 2.5 years, CultureSource has hosted IXITI.com as a way to promote the variety of arts events and programs going on in our community. However, we know that the name IXITI has been a challenge—to say, to spell, and to identify with. As of mid-June, the content from IXITI.com—including the region’s comprehensive arts and culture calendar, and editorial arts journalism—will be integrated into one cohesive website and unified CultureSource brand.
So, what does this mean for you?
Thank you to all of you who attended our CultureConversation at the DIA on May 3rd. We look forward to continuing these conversations with you in the coming months.
