The National Council on the Arts advises the chair of the National Endowment for the Arts, Dr. Maria Rosario Jackson, who also chairs the Council, on agency policies and programs. It reviews and makes recommendations to the chair on applications for grants, funding guidelines, and leadership initiatives.

In addition, this meeting will include remarks by Chair Jackson and other NEA staff members on efforts to strengthen local arts ecosystems throughout the country, expand equity and access to the arts, and advance arts and culture throughout the federal government.

Young musicians from the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz’s Peer-to-Peer Jazz Education Touring program will perform; the Institute has received NEA grants to support this program, as well as additional support for recovery efforts through the NEA’s ARP and CARES Act funding.

The meeting will also include an update on the NEA’s collaboration with the General Services Administration (GSA) to increase awareness of GSA’s Art in Architecture program and to promote federal art commission opportunities for artists that reflect the diversity of communities across the nation.
