Thank you, Fall River and New Bedford!

We so enjoyed connecting with you at the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts presentation on Tuesday, March 26.

As promised, here are the resources we shared (and a few extras!) during that conversation:

  • Power point presentation

  • Message Framework

  • Applying the Message Guide worksheet

  • Amplifying and Evolving Experiences worksheet

  • The success stories we shared during the presentation (Including Eugene Symphony, New Ballet School, San Jose Museum of Art, Sheldon Theater, and Pendleton Center for the Arts) can be found here.

  • We also referenced some webinar recordings (including Eugene Symphony and Sheldon Theater). Those are here.

  • For those of you who are thinking about how to address issues of social isolation in your work, check out the interview we have with the team behind Arts Buddy, and the Museumkaart Match app from the Netherlands.

  • More detail on the messages we tested in our Massachusetts research, where we saw great traction among all research segments after simple exposure to these messages, can be found here.

  • If you didn’t get a chance to sign up for the Creating Connection newsletter, where we share news, data, and insights from artists and organizations working on applying the concepts to their work, please do so here.

Last but not least, if you have any questions about the research or recommendations, please email Creating Connection Program Director Anne Romens.
