National Endowment for the Arts Launches Major Project on Why We Need Art

The National Endowment for the Arts is leading a new task force of 13 federal agencies and departments to come up with more research on how the arts help people in life. Basically – what good are the arts. Artforum and Yahoo News report that they will:

  • host a series of quarterly webinars on compelling research and practices;
  • coordinate the distribution of information about funding opportunities for researchers and providers of the arts, health, and education across the lifespan;
  • conduct or commission a gap-analysis and literature review of federally sponsored research on the arts and human development;
  • identify and leverage joint research funding opportunities across agencies;
  • host a convening with researchers and practitioners for professional development and capacity-building in the field of arts and human development
