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.”
