The Creative Arkansas Community Hub & Exchange, also known as CACHE, conducted a comprehensive survey titled CACHE Canvas 2021. It dives into the arts, culture, and creative community of Northwest Arkansas.
- The intention of the survey was to identify systematic needs and provide a strategic direction for the CACHE program to develop further alongside other community leaders. CACHE declares it is committed to continually assessing and adapting to community needs.
- The findings show primarily that artists and non-profits face similar obstacles when it comes to thriving in the current creative ecosystem, primarily revolving around accessibility to a marketplace. The survey is comparable to a 2019 survey conducted by The National Endowment for the Arts.
