In 2009 SIAP made a site visit to the Tucson Pima Arts Council (TPAC) to collaborate on a plan to document TPAC’s impact on civic engagement in Tucson and Pima County.
The report begins with a review of the policy context in which the project was undertaken, including the findings of the Pima Cultural Plan. This is followed by a discussion of the proposed strategy and specific recommendations for documenting civic engagement. Specifically, we propose five strategies: improving organizational data gathering, telling stories, documenting artists and the informal cultural sector, identifying institutional networks, and using geographic information systems to integrate data for analysis.
