Cincinnati's ArtsWave announces new goals to maximize community-wide impact

By Carol Motsinger

OHIO---ArtsWave isn’t just an ATM for Cincinnati’s cultural institutions and efforts. Yes, the nonprofit supports over 100 local organizations with the nation’s oldest and largest community campaign for the arts: In 2015, some 42,000 donors raised $12.25 million. But, says president and CEO Alecia Kintner, the financial support is just the beginning. The new 10-year-plan for the almost 90-year-old organization is designed to ensure that this investment yields massive community-wide impact. The Blueprint for Collective Action is aimed to provide clarity on community priorities that arts organizations can influence and enhance. [link]
