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.

Recovery Dashboard

Enhance your advocacy efforts. Track the recovery of the opera sector using live StatsCan data that compares the live performing arts sector to industry aggregates since the pandemic with regard to jobs, GDP, and business conditions.

Resilience Framework

Track your organizational change efforts as you build back better through a series of indicators that relate to your commitments to Equity, Sustainability, and Innovation.

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.
