In it she shares the lessons learned and successful approaches supported by the two funders.It features 14 case studies of “innovative audience development approaches” by local arts organisations that the foundations have funded.Cleveland FoundationThe Cleveland Foundation, established 101 years ago, is the world’s first community foundation. It dedicates about 10% of its annual grantmaking of $95 million to arts and culture support. Recently, its Engaging the Future initiative ran from July 2011 through September 2014 and was specifically designed to empower local arts organisations to test approaches to reach younger and more diverse audiences.In the book it shares the experiences of The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Cleveland Orchestra, Cleveland Public Theatre, DANCECleveland, GroundWorks, Great Lakes Theater and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland.Paul Hamlyn FoundationThe Paul Hamlyn Foundation was established in 1987 and is one of the largest independent grantmaking organisations in the United Kingdom. It focuses on helping people realise their potential and improve quality of life through the arts, education and social projects. A substantial part of the £20 million in makes in grants each year supports projects that allow communities to access, enjoy and benefit from the arts.It has contributed lessons learned from working with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, the National Theatre, Opera North, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Royal Shakespeare Company, Sadler’s Wells and Tate in the UK.Kathleen Cerveny, Program Director for Institutional Learning and Arts Initiatives at the Cleveland Foundation, explained how the book came about: Advertisement Funders share guide to audience development strategies for arts organisations 47 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 “The Cleveland Foundation has been so impressed by the innovative work undertaken by the arts organisations in our Engaging the Future initiative and we are proud to showcase their accomplishments alongside those of similarly important British cultural institutions.“Annabel Jackson has conceived a view of audience development for the arts from within and throughout the structure of these organisations that often requires doing business very differently, even to the point of changing the organisation’s internal culture. We hope that these case studies, while unique to each organisation’s goals and situation, will offer a fresh perspective for others seeking to engage new audiences in their creative offerings.”Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Director, Grants & Programmes, Régis Cochefert, added:“As part of the new strategy that we launched in June 2015, arts evidence and the understanding of impact are amongst our main themes – together with access & participation in the arts. This close look at particular case studies – and the opportunity to compare and contrast US and UK approaches within a broader framework on thoughts and reflections – felt like an opportunity too good to resist and we are delighted to have played our part in contributing to a lively debate through this book.“Audience development, retention of audiences and working with hard-to-reach communities, groups and individual are as important as ever – if not more – in a context of reduced public subsidies in the UK. It is something we care passionately about and is very much in the DNA of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. We very much hope that Annabel’s book will become a springboard for action in the arts and culture ecosystems across the United Kingdom.”Author Annabel Jackson, who specialises in evaluating arts and culture, and working with – and building capacity in – arts organisations, explains her aims in the foreword to the book:“This book is not intended to be prescriptive. It is a source of ideas and practical principles, not of rules. I see new audience development as urgent, as others have described it, but also as fundamentally positive and full of choices…New audience development is not a threat to organisational integrity, but rather a process of reimagining the organisation’s work while being rooted in its essence.”You can download the 100-page Imagining Arts Organizations for New Audiences in PDF at no charge.

January 19, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Four years after editor’s murder, investigative reporter publishes new evidence Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Help by sharing this information April 28, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en Organisation Reporters Without Borders welcomes a new book by investigative reporter Nedim Sener that sheds light on the murder of Hrant Dink, a Turkish newspaper editor of Armenian origin who was gunned down on the street outside the office of his weekly Agos in the Istanbul district of Sisli exactly four years ago today. Released four days ago by Turkish publishing house Dogan and entitled “Red Friday: who broke Dink’s pen?”, Sener’s book accuses the Istanbul police of lying at the start of the trial of those accused of murdering Dink. Sener supports this claim with a copy of a memo dated 2 March 2004 (three years before Dink’s murder), in which Istanbul deputy director of security Hakan Aydin Türkeli requests protection for Dink’s home and office because of threats prompted by an article about the Armenian origin of the Sabiha Gökçen, the adopted daughter of the Turkish republic’s founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and another article entitled “Armenian Identity.”The memo said Dink had been threatened by ultranationalist groups. During a protest outside Agos on 26 February 2004, Dink had a received a threatening phone call in which he was told: “Hrant Dink, you are now the target of our hate! You are now in the Turkish nation’s sights!”Türkeli sent his memo explicitly requesting protection for Dink to the police in Bakirköy, the neighbourhood where Dink lived, to the police in Sisli, where the newspaper is located, and to the police anti-terrorism department. These police units all denied having been told about threats to the newspaper editor.In response to a request by the Dink family’s lawyer, senior Istanbul police officers were questioned on 1 May 2008 about the threats Dink had received before his death. Former police intelligence chief Ali Fuat Yilmazer replied: “We have no information to the effect that (Hrant) Dink received any threat whatsoever before he was murdered.” Anti-terrorism section chief Selim Kutkan said: “No document of this nature exists in police archives.”The book also asks the following question: How is it possible that the Istanbul police were unaware of a later warning in a report dated 15 February 2006 from the police in Trabzon (the home town of most of the accused killers), which clearly stated that, “Yasin Hayal is going to kill Hrant Dink at all costs.” Sener’s book also reports that Ogün Samast, the youth who allegedly shot Dink, was relieved to be arrested the day after the murder because “a nationalist group was ready to eliminate him as soon as he arrived in the city of Giresun.” That at least is what Samast told investigators from the prime minister’s office on 15 April 2008 although he refused to sign the statement.Reporters Without Borders urges the Turkish courts to take account of the facts reported in Sener’s book when reaching their decisions in this case, following the lead taken by the European Court of Human Rights last September. It is vital that all those who were in any way involved in this terrible murder should be brought to justice, regardless of their position within the state apparatus. The next hearing in the trial of the 19 people currently being tried before an Istanbul court for Dink’s murder will take place on 7 February. During the last hearing, Samast’s case was unexpectedly transferred to a court for minors in Sultanahmet on the grounds that he was a minor at the time of the murder .Dink’s death will be commemorated at 3 p.m. today in Sisli, at the place where he was gunned down.

Ocwen Financial has re-initiated its two-year-old stock repurchase program after a nine-month suspension, according to an 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.The stock repurchase program was originally announced on October 31, 2013, by the Ocwen board of directors, for an aggregate of $500 million of the company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The company announced that it was suspending the stock repurchase program on February 5, 2015.“The company believes it is appropriate at this time to reinitiate our stock repurchase program effective November 19, 2015,” Ocwen said in the SEC filing. “As of November 19, 2015, the approximate remaining value of shares that may be repurchased under the program is $129.7 million.”When contacted by DS News, Ocwen declined to comment on the re-initiation of the stock repurchase program. In the SEC filing, the company said there can be no assurance to how many shares it will purchase at any given period under the share repurchase program, if any at all are repurchased. Purchases under Ocwen’s program may be made on market or in privately negotiated transactions, according to the filing.Ocwen announced earlier in November that it had closed an offering of fixed-rate asset-backed term notes issued by Ocwen Master Advance Receivables Trust (OMART) and totaling $600 million in aggregate principal. The sale of the notes marks a bright spot for the Atlanta-based servicer after a down third quarter. In late October, Ocwen announced a net loss of $66.8 million for the quarter. Also, toward the end of September, Ocwen laid off about 300 employees, or approximately 10 percent of its U.S. workforce. In mid-September, toward the end of Q3, Ocwen settled a class action suit for $140 million in a Miami court with homeowners who had sued over inflated “force placed insurance” premiums.
