Arts and culture enrich our lives, our communities, and our nation. In this pivotal moment in our history, there is a growing recognition that the arts reveal new ideas, unlock opportunities, and help us confront the many challenges before us. This first-of-its-kind national convening will bring together leaders from across sectors, including government officials; policymakers; artists; arts advocates; academics; philanthropic, labor, and community leaders; and the public. Together we will consider the ideas, policies, and actions we can take to better integrate and elevate the arts and humanities throughout our country.
Co-hosted by the White House Domestic Policy Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, “Healing, Bridging, Thriving: A Summit on Arts and Culture in our Communities” will explore how the arts can contribute to health and well-being, animate and strengthen physical spaces, fuel our democracy, and drive equitable outcomes for communities across the country. Featuring panels, performances, and more, this convening will generate support needed to help ensure that the arts and their benefits are accessible to all.
