Jonathan Katz, CEO, National Assembly of State Arts Agencies
In dialogue with Lawrence Rothfield, Associate Professor of English, Faculty Director, Cultural Policy Center, the University of Chicago
Co-sponsored by the Cultural Policy Center at the Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies and the School of Social Service Administration, the University of Chicago
The goal of this convening was to plan a large-scale study of state funding of the arts and humanities. No such study had been done for the past thirty years, despite state funding being the largest conduit of public funding for the arts and humanities.
The study, titled Mapping State Cultural Policy: The State of Washington, was published in 2003.
