This research aims to explain the relationship between three major performance indicators; efficiency, effectiveness and economy and to what extent these indicators and relationships are influenced by changing levels of subsidies. Based on longitudinal data consisting of 882 observations from 144 non-profit performing arts organizations in the Netherlands, that received funding from OCW and FPK between 2009-2016 generalized linear mixed model analysis shows a significant negative relationship between efficiency and effectiveness and a significant positive relationship between both efficiency and economy, and effectiveness and economy. Changing levels of subsidies are found to have a significant negative influence on economy, but no significant influence on the relationship between efficiency and effectiveness.
