About Bright Spots

With support from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, we at Helicon Collaborative conducted a study of cultural groups in the Pacific Northwest from September 2011 to February 2012.* Our goal was to identify “bright spots,” defined as cultural organizations that are successfully adapting to their changing circumstances without exceptional resources (see The Original Story) and to see if these organizations share characteristics or strategies that can be replicated by others.

The paper is a summary of our findings, which is meant to be just the beginning of an ongoing discussion about what is working in the cultural sector. This blog is intended to be one venue for that discussion. Please email us at brightspots@heliconcollab.net if you would like to author a post about how the bright spots principles resonate with you or your experience with bright spots in your community.
