Hi everyone,


Piggybacking off of Ruby’s email, I wanted to let you know that Randy Cohen, AFTA’s Vice President of Research and Policy will be doing a live webinar on the results of our Americans Speak Out about the Arts in 2018 study. If interested, be sure and register. If you aren’t able to join live, the webinar will be recorded and available for replay on Wednesday, October 3.



Date/Time: Tuesday, October 2, 2018 @ 3:00pm EDT


Registration Link: http://bit.ly/2ImyOqZ


Description: It’s undeniable—the arts transform people and communities every day. But how do Americans feel about the arts? Do they value artistic activities and arts education? Do they feel the arts are an important part of their lives and do they support government funding for the arts?

There’s no need to guess at the answers for these questions! Join Randy Cohen, Vice President Research & Policy with Americans for the Arts, for a webinar about new data from the "Americans Speak Out About the Arts in 2018" study, which provides an in-depth look at the perceptions and attitudes about the arts in the United States. Based on more than 3,000 interviews and conducted in partnership with Ipsos Public Affairs, this study documents the public's personal involvement in the arts, the individual and community benefits that come from engaging in the arts, and the public's support for arts education and government arts funding.

We hope to see you there!

Hola esteemed colleagues – making sure you don’t miss the release of some great new research!!




This morning we released Americans Speak Out about the Arts in 2018, our national public opinion survey on the arts—and one of the largest ever conducted. This is an update of the study we conducted two years ago. Now, like then, there are some excellent stories . . .
