We are happy to announce NASAA's June 22 web seminar on Boosting State Economic Growth: Five Roles for Arts, Culture and Design.
The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA) will share a preview of the findings of a new report from the National Governor's Association (NGA), Boosting State Economic Growth: Five Roles for Arts, Culture and Design. The report, due to be released later this summer, demonstrates how creative industries, creative place-making and arts education can help states address their most pressing economic challenges. Presenters will include:
Laura Scanlan, Director of State and Regional Partnerships at the NEA
Mary Jo Waits, Director of the Economic, Human Services and Workforce Division at the NGA Center for Best Practices
Kelly Barsdate, Chief Program and Planning Officer, National Assembly of State Arts Agencies
The one-hour session will include highlights of the research findings, time for Q∓A and tips for using the material in your own state.
