Between 2005 and 2009, SIAP conducted an evaluation of the Knight Foundation's Community Partners in Arts Access (CPAA) initiative in North Philadelphia and Camden, NJ. The reports document changes in cultural participation in North Philadelphia and Camden between 2004 and 2008, based on the Benchmark Project completed in 2005, and examine the cultural ecology and role of artists in these communities. Qualitative study, including waves of interviews and participant-observation with CPAA grantees, allowed SIAP not only to document what actually happened but to make sense of changing theories of action during the course of the initiative.
