Since its debut in October 2007, Createquity has been hailed as “revolutionary,” “must-read,” “important,” “lively,” “thorough,” and “so amazingly good it’s almost in its own category of resource” by readers across the web. A unique virtual think tank exploring the intersection of the arts with a wide range of topics including politics, economics, philanthropy, leadership, research, and urban planning, Createquity is a hub for next-generation ideas on the role of the arts in a creative society.
Ian David Moss helps funders, government agencies, and others support the arts more effectively by harnessing the power of data to drive informed decision-making. As Research Director for Fractured Atlas, Ian designed and leads implementation of the organization’s pioneering cultural asset mapping software, Archipelago, which aggregates and visualizes information about creative activities in a particular geography in order to better illuminate who’s making art, who’s engaging with it, where it’s happening, and how it’s made possible. A member of the Americans for the Arts Emerging Leaders Council, he was previously Development Manager for the American Music Center and founded two first-of-their-kind performing ensembles: a hybrid electric chamber group/experimental rock band and a choral collective devoted to the music of the past 25 years. He holds BA and MBA degrees from Yale University.
