Arts and Rural Prosperity: Capitol Hill Briefing
Endorsed by the Congressional Arts Caucus, this May 2019 briefing explores the power of the arts and culture to expand economic opportunities for the 60 million Americans who live in rural areas. The creative industries offer proven pathways to job creation, business expansion, talent retention and a great quality of life. Expert speakers at this briefing share rigorous research and examples of frontier entrepreneurs and rural communities that are flourishing through the arts.
