Culture Counts is a cloud-based software platform used to evaluate the impact of a wide range of arts and cultural activities. 

The system captures feedback from audience members, expert peers, artists and education groups about their experience in a simple and cost-effective way. 

In consultation with the sector we have developed a set of metrics that describe the quality of arts programming as well as important social and cultural outcomes. 

Many arts and cultural organisations are already using Culture Counts to measure the varied and unique impacts of their events and programs. This enables them to tell richer stories about their importance in society, to attract greater support and resources for themselves and the sector.
