Public Support for the Arts: A Global Perspective

You are invited to join us on Tuesday, November 19, for a web seminar offering a global perspective on cultural policy and government support for the arts. This session explores how different nations are framing the public value of arts and culture. It also reviews how the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) facilitates the exchange of cultural policy news, research and best practices among ministries of arts and culture around the world. Our featured presenter is Sarah Gardner, executive director of IFACCA; our moderator is Jonathan Katz, NASAA CEO. Take advantage of this special occasion to put your state's work in a global context and to learn how other countries are making a case for public support.


The seminar takes place on Tuesday, November 19, 2013, from 4:00 - 5:00p.m. Eastern time. (Note that this is a later hour than usual for a NASAA web seminar due to the time zone-Australia!-of our featured presenter.) Plan to log on a few minutes early so that we can begin promptly.

SAA Staff and Council Registration

Registration is free for all state arts agency staff members and council members. SAA staff and council members may participate in the seminar from your agency office, another workplace, your home, or anywhere else you have access to a computer and phone line. To register, use our web seminar registration form. If you have any questions or concerns regarding registration, please contact Eric Giles and include your name, title, agency name and phone number in your e-mail.

For Your Constituents and Partners

To manage costs and keep these sessions free for state arts agencies, NASAA places some limits on participation by others. Please note, however, that we provide three easy ways for state arts agencies to make this seminar accessible to partners and constituents:

  • Secure a guest login. NASAA has reserved up to three guest logins per state for this session. You may request guest logins to invite specific individuals (state agency representatives, constituents, partners, consultants, etc.) whom you think may be interested in this seminar. Contact Eric Giles for guest invitation instructions.
  • Gather as a group. You may invite as many additional people as you wish-state colleagues or constituents-to join you in viewing the session at your office or another central location. If you plan to invite a group to view the seminar along with you, please indicate this in your seminar registration e-mail.
  • Distribute the session transcripts afterward. Audio files, visuals and full-text transcripts of NASAA web seminars are available at
NASAA's mission is to strengthen state arts agencies.
