Field's efforts are truly breaking new ground. Grantee projects are intriguing. I wonder if this new research on the cultural consumer is useful to your grantees in helping them have strategic conversations with businesses to forge alliances, collaborate on new business models or recruit sponsors. It was written for the business marketer in mind. Keep turning the "Field" for artists ERPA, it's inspiring!
