NASAA’s mission is to strengthen state arts agencies.
We are the professional association of the nation’s 56 state and jurisdictional arts agencies. NASAA is a national, not-for-profit, nonpartisan organization that champions public support for the arts in America.
Together, NASAA and the state arts agencies advance the arts as an essential ingredient in the well-being and prosperity of our nation’s individuals, communities and families.
NASAA’s research and member education programs inform and inspire state arts agencies.
NASAA advocates for the policy interests of state arts agencies.
We are a welcoming and inclusive professional community.
