Organization Structural Change Grant

BLVE Consults
Originally published on March 11, 2022

In 2021, Calgary Arts Development engaged Brian Loevner of BLVE Consults to undertake an evaluation and live case study of the Organization Structural Change Grant

The arms-length nature of this process is an effort to ensure the analysis and recommendations of the case study are free from staff bias, and reflect an accurate assessment of the program intent, process, and impact. 

This evaluation project is continuing into 2022 as we look to the development and re-design of the program. The results of this work will be shared on this page as it becomes available. The intention of these case studies is to better understand the role of funders in supporting organizations through life-cycle and transformational change work, and what relationships, resources, processes, and policies are needed to better serve the sector across the arts ecosystem.

Opportunity Creation Process Narrative

Through conversations with Calgary Arts Development staff and other leaders in the arts sector, the first phase of this work focused on the inception of the Organization Structural Change Grant, including the development, design, and implementation of the program. The report outlines challenges, identifies issues and realities, and offers generative recommendations and suggestions for what the future of the program could look like.
