NEA Announces Arts & Human Development Task Force

« Back

Nov 30, 2011

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has announced a new federal Interagency Task Force to promote research on the arts and human development. Included in the task force are Health & Human Services, National Institutes of Health, the Education Department, and ten other federal agencies and departments seeking to advance research on how the arts help people reach their full potential at all stages of life.

Taking a collective leap forward, the members of the NEA Interagency Task Force will work together to help fill the research gaps and build a stronger evidence base to inform future policy and practices nationwide. The task force is a result of The Arts and Human Development (PDF), a white paper that proposes a framework for long-term collaboration among federal agencies to build capacity for future research and evidence sharing about the arts' role in human development.
