Arts & Culture

Arts and culture define a community and celebrate its diversity by touching and inspiring us individually and collectively. As a sector, the arts are backbones to thriving economies. OMG’s 30 years of experience in arts and cultural investments includes work that demonstrates the value of the arts in 21st century economies, the contribution of community arts projects to all aspects of community building, and the role of the arts in a high quality public education. As researchers and strategists, evaluators, and capacity-builders for single programs, foundation portfolios, and national change agendas, OMG’s work in the arts has underpinned innovative, scaled up programming. It has created shared regional arts education agendas, advanced national arts education policy, supported exciting experiments in local cultural identity, and increased the organizational and leadership strength of arts organizations to deliver quality arts programming.
