Collective Insourcing and ArtsPool

Collective Insourcing: A Systemic Approach to Nonprofit Arts Management was written by Guy Yarden and Sarah Maxfield in 2011 as a concept paper proposing an approach to arts administration that leverages shared resources, rather than continuing in the current model where artists and arts organizations are overburdened by predominantly independent operations.

Since this paper was published, the project, which is now known as ArtsPool and is incubated by The Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York, has received significant funding from the Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund, The New York Community Trust, and The Scherman Foundation’s Rosin Fund. With this funding, the development team, which includes Yarden and Maxfield as well as David Sheingold and Max Dana, created a business plan and are now in an early development phase.
