Study Abstract

Presentation: The Arts, Social/Civic Engagement, and Innovation

What is the significance of placed-based art? What is the relationship between placed-based art and civic engagement and social cohesion? Researchers from the National Endowment for the Arts and a few of their grantees will explore the role of artists, designers, and cultural organizations in transforming communities within cities, towns, and rural places across the country. The focus is on research studies and measurement approaches to understand the relationships between place-based arts projects and civic engagement, social cohesion, and other community-level outcomes.
