Cultural organizations deeply engaged in their communities

One of the most common questions we get about our Bright Spots report is what it really means to be “deeply engaged with your community,” which was one of the five principles that we identified as being key to healthy and dynamic cultural organizations. As part of our work evaluating the Rockefeller Foundation’s Cultural Innovation Fund we worked with some amazing filmmakers to create videos of some of the work that the grantees of that program are doing. All of these organizations hit the mark in terms of being highly relevant to and engaged with their communities.
