Metris Arts Consulting (Easton, PA) believes in the power of culture to enrich peopleâ€™s lives and help communities thrive. We believe those benefits should be broadly shared and inclusively developed. Metris seeks to provide high caliber planning, research, and evaluation services to reveal artsâ€™ impacts and help communities equitably improve cultural vitality. Although we are best known for principal Anne Gadwa Nicodemusâ€™ leading work in the realm of creative placemaking, Metrisâ€™ core service offerings also include place-based arts and culture ecology studies, arts and culture plans for cities and towns, and robust project evaluations. We work with a range of national and international clients, including philanthropic organizations, government agencies (local to federal), and community development and arts nonprofits. To accelerate change, we seek to share knowledge and amplify the voices of those closest to the work.
As an equal opportunity employer, Metris commits to equal employment and promotion opportunity regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteranÂ status. Our full equity commitment is available here.Â
