11 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services Values We believe that arts, culture, creativity, and innovation are basic to community life, that the presence of working artists and other creative people inspire and uplift a community, and that diverse people of all ages, economic backgrounds, abilities, and beliefs can better know and understand themselves and others by participating in arts, culture, and creativity.

12 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services We value the presence in our community of an arts and culture ecosystem that exists and grows organically through the interaction of creative people and the interrelationships with arts, culture, civic, community, educational, and other organizations and the people they serve.

13 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services We believe that fostering collaboration with and among all the people and organizations in the creative ecosystem is the highest priority of the Madison Arts & Culture Alliance, followed closely by the belief that the ecosystem, and therefore the community, can be further strengthened by work of MACA and it’s members.

14 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services We deeply respect and honor all those who dedicate their life and their livelihood to creative endeavors, and work to attract, welcome, and retain professional artists and other creative people and organizations through all the disciplines.

15 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services We believe in the inherent creativity of all people. We respect and honor all those who participate in arts and culture, and embrace creative lifestyles.

16 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services We are deliberately expansive in our definition of arts, culture, and creativity as a broad and constantly evolving field with overlaps across many areas of life. We do so with the belief that arts, culture, and creativity are inherently inclusive, and that every citizen and every group of citizens contain within them inherited and acquired cultural identities.

17 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services When revealed, shared, and celebrated through creative works, these cultural identities lead to new expression, new understanding, and new ways of looking at our community and the world.

37 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services Summary of Key Operating Assumptions As the planning process evolved, the Strategic Planning Committee considered many key questions; The answers to these questions formed assumptions that are integral to the plan and incorporated throughout; A summary of the most significant assumptions follows:

38 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services Key Operating Assumptions 1 In order to be effective and sustainable., MACA must redefine its membership criteria to become more inclusive. In order to be effective and sustainable, MACA requires the ongoing presence of professional staff with experience in the field. In order to be effective and sustainable, MACA will be required to raise significant funds from individuals, foundations, corporations, and government sources on an annual basis. MACA fundraising activities will complement rather than compete with member fundraising activities.

39 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services Key Operating Assumptions 2 MACA is predominantly an information, advocacy, and service organization to the field of arts and culture. As such it is deferential to the missions and goals of its members; As a programmer and promoter, MACA's highest priorities are programs that foster collaboration and help to strengthen member organizations and individuals by aggregating activities for greater impact and efficiency. MACA will occasionally produce programs to fill gaps it identifies with programs its Board and members deem important to the overall health of arts and culture in the area.

40 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services Key Operating Assumptions 3 MACA's activities as a programmer and promoter will be limited to such programs that are at least revenue neutral to MACA's overall operating budget. While MACA will engage in activities to lobby for and help find appropriate space for arts and culture activities and events in the region, this strategic plan does not foresee that MACA will purchase, lease, operate, or manage any facilities.

41 Created 11/29/10 Bryant Associates LLC/Front of House Services Scale-of-Magnitude Three-Year Budget Projection Summary Based on current conditions, projected programs, and other speculation. Intended as guide only. Actual budgets will change.
