How it works

Artsmetric is a free digital benchmarking platform for arts and cultural organisations to learn from their peers. It allows you to get an overview of your organisation, track it and compare it with other organisations.

Moreover, Artsmetric allows you to find new partners across Europe. And access digital resources concerning the most common challenges cultural organisations are facing nowadays.

Getting started

Artsmetric is entirely free. Just create your account, invite your colleagues and fill in the questionnaire together. You will soon be able to keep track of your metrics and compare them with other organisations.


Once your profile is ready, you can start filling in the benchmarking questionnaire. It is divided into six sections: basic details about your organisation, strategy, activity, audiences, resources and finances.


Your dashboard provides you with an at-a-glance view of your organisation’s metrics and key performance indicators.

Sector overview

The sector overview displays the most relevant aggregate data from similar organisations. All data is anonymised and allows you to have a clearer understanding of the sector.

Organisation overview

The organisation overview compiles your organisation’s key performance indicators. And it allows you to track them through time.

Finding partners

Registered users can search for similar organisations across Europe. Our filtering system helps you finding results based on organisational values, sector, work areas, size of the venue and geographical parameters. Now there’s no excuse to cooperate internationally!

Your profile

Create your organisation’s profile in less than five minutes. You will immediately get access to lots of potential partners in Europe. We have also included real-time social media data so you can have all your followers in one place.

Knowledge base

Artsmetric’s knowledge base contains hundreds of selected resources on arts, culture and urban topics for managers, activists, researchers and policymakers. Examples of topics are business models, urban regeneration, leadership, marketing, governance, etc. We are continuously enriching the platform with new and useful resources.
