We would like to thank the people and organizations that provided us with our initial data for our maps. The information in the databases we have collected to date is helping to provide baseline information to begin work on CAMP, but we need your help to identify what is missing, incorrect, or what could be identified as a new cultural asset. The list below includes our sources for our initial dataset before collecting community responses:
The Social Impact of the Arts (SIAP) at the University of Pennsylvania (Mark Stern and Susan Seifert). This was our largest dataset that included nonprofit arts organizations and creative businesses. The dataset for nonprofits came from the IRS Master File of Exempt Organizations 2014, and the dataset for the for-profit businesses came from a proprietary business database called referenceUSA (refUSA), July 2014. In 2017 we hope to work with SIAP to test their Arts and Social Wellbeing Indicators here in Austin.
