Fresh Case Making

NASAA expanded the Why Should Government Support the Arts? policy brief. Designed to support state-level advocacy, this new edition answers frequently asked questions―and debunks common myths and misconceptions―about government funding for arts and culture. Arts leaders in every state use this brief to sharpen and substantiate their arguments for public support of the arts.

Return on Investment

NASAA launched new resources that colorfully illustrate the benefits of arts funding. The NEA Fact Sheet provides concise (and customized!) talking points on the state-federal partnership. States Investing in the Arts offers a set of infographics that highlight the economic, educational and civic results of public investments in the arts.

Inspired Leadership

State arts agency staff and council members from across the nation gathered at NASAA Assembly 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Assembly's in-depth dialogues, educational sessions and networking forums were all designed to enhance participants' arts leadership savvy.

Federal Know-how

NASAA was a tireless champion for state arts agencies on Capitol Hill, promoting your importance to federal lawmakers and keeping you up-to-date on how events in Washington D.C. affect your state. We were your go-to source for a balanced and incisive perspective on the federal budget, presidential recommendations, the STEAM caucus and more. NASAA's virtual briefing sessions, timely e-mail alerts and one-on-one conversations empowered arts advocates nationwide.

Thank you!

NASAA's mission is to strengthen state arts agencies.
