From the National Guild for Community Arts Education site:
The latest edition of the National Guild’s Benchmarking Data Report is now available! This report contains a wealth of data—on staff and faculty compensation, instructional fees, income and expense ratios, and more—that can inform your planning and budgeting and help funders and policy makers better understand the needs and impact of our field. The data, gathered from 179 Guild member organizations, is presented in easy to read charts and tables.
For the first time, the report also includes sections on racial equity, creative aging, and analysis of salary information by organization type, type of community served, and organizational budget size.
Data was collected in 2019 before the pandemic and this summer’s uprising and call to reckoning about structural racism and anti-Black violence. This means that the data provides a valuable snapshot of where the community arts education field was just before these transformational events.
