Why Government Support?

The National Assembly of State Art Agencies (NASAA) has released a new resource designed to help arts advocates answer the following questions:

  • Why should government support the arts?
  • Are the arts a worthwhile investment during hard economic times?
  • Why can’t the private sector pick up the costs?
  • Why are state art agencies important?

You can download the report here at the NASAA website.  NASAA also provides a Research Supplement, which “provides links to numerous studies revealing the value of the arts and the many benefits that they provide to communities across America.”
