As arts supporters, it is our mission to educate and inform the general public and policymakers about the social significance and positive impact the arts have - not only on daily life, but on the vitality of our nation.
The arts are transformative and can help shape the very fabric of our society. In our Legislation and Policy section, we’ve gathered resources, information about our key programs, and other tools to help those looking for facts and outcomes related to arts policy.
Americans for the Arts serves, advances, and leads the network of organizations and individuals who cultivate, promote, sustain, and support the arts in America. Founded in 1960, Americans for the Arts is the nation's leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education.
