National Endowment for the Arts Presents Webinar on Three 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts Follow-Up Reports


The NEA's Office of Research & Analysis will present a webinar about three new 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts reports.

The reports explore how factors such as arts education, age and generational characteristics, and personal creativity have affected arts participation patterns in the U.S. Based on independent analyses of data from the NEA's Survey of Public Participation in the Arts, the reports add significantly to what is known about arts participation in America.

Each of the reports' authors will present findings and answer questions. The reports are:

  • Arts Education in America: What the Declines Mean for Arts Participation, by Nick Rabkin and E.C. Hedberg, NORC at the University of Chicago
  • Age and Arts Participation: A Case against Demographic Destiny, by Mark J. Stern, University of Pennsylvania
  • Beyond Attendance: A Multi-Modal Understanding of Arts Participation, by Jennifer L. Novak-Leonard and Alan S. Brown, WolfBrown


Thursday, February 24, 2011, 2:00-4:00 pm EST
