What are the components of the Opera Impact Platform?
Opera Impact Platform
You won’t need to be an evaluation expert to use our system. It is based on the Opera Civic Impact Framework, developed by and for the opera sector. Best of all, it connects arts impacts to The Common Approach and UN Sustainable Development Goals. If you can use surveymonkey you can use this.

What’s the cost of not using
the Opera Impact Platform?
The Opera Impact Platform is a collective tool for sector-wide change. Arts advocacy succeeds when we can tell a consistent common story of impact. Governments, funders and the public respond to a united sector, well organized for the long term. Going it alone results in a fragmented impact story and favours the few over the many. If you’re reading this, then now is the time to sign-up, it will help you make informed decisions during a time we are all having difficult conversations.
