With so much focus on the national political agenda, it’s often easy to forget how state and local policies impact both artists and area economies. Though there are a multitude of issues on the road to recovery, any discussions about solutions must address concerns of the cultural sector, whose energy and expertise can help towns and cities across the country emerge from the current crisis (and be better prepared for the next). How can state and local policies better reflect the needs of specific groups, like working musicians, small businesses and arts presenters? What’s needed to achieve sustainable local cultural communities? What role should local government play in promoting a respect for the arts in American society? Join our group of experts in examining these questions and more.
