Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts: Arts Sector Survey
AMS Planning & Research is an arts management consulting firm that has been engaged to work with the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts (BOPA) in the creation of a strategic plan.
The purpose of this survey is to understand how BOPA and its programs are viewed by individuals and organizations deeply involved in Baltimore arts and culture; additionally, we want to test the needs of the sector and probe for priorities as to which of those needs BOPA might address through its strategic plan.
The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) is a standalone 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves as the arts council, events producer and film office for the City of Baltimore. In addition to organizing almost every fun, free city-wide event, BOPA uplifts Baltimore’s creative community through funding and support to artists, arts programs and organizations across the City. BOPA is the primary advocate for the arts within the City of Baltimore, and BOPA’s annual economic impact for special events and festivals is $111.1 million
