Arts and Creativity Strengthen Our Nation


On February 19, the Wisconsin Arts Board and Arts Wisconsin hosted a webinar entitled “Arts and Creativity Strengthen Our Nation" – a session to introduce the newly published guide of the same name created by the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies. ​

Arts and creativity make us stronger—as individuals, families, communities, states and as a country. They are a backbone of innovation, prosperity, and thriving people and places. How do we talk about this now, especially given the changes that the pandemic has wrought on our individual, family, and community life? The guide provides ideas and strategies to make that case.​​

Along with an overview of the components of this new guide, the webinar includes an update on Governor Evers' recently announced Biennial Budget, and recommendations on how you can help motivate our leaders to increase our public investment in the many benefits that the arts provide to WI's people. ​

A second webinar will be set for a later date to take this new learning deeper and apply it to educating state and local policy makers.​
