NASAA Notes: November 2017

State Arts Agency Support for Folk Arts

Folk and traditional arts receive significant investment from state arts agencies due to their cultural, educational and economic importance. As a new way to communicate state arts agency support of folk and traditional arts, this interactive dashboard, State Arts Agency Support for Folk Arts looks at current and long-term support of this important discipline. This visualization celebrates state arts agencies’ folk arts grant programs all over the country, revealing:

  • who receives folk arts grants,
  • what kinds of activities these grants support,
  • how awards made to folk arts compare to grant making in other disciplines,
  • and how folk arts grant making has changed over time.

You can explore the visualization in a few ways—scroll over the interactive map for more details on distinct awards, drill down to a specific state through the map or select the printable version if you want to look at it off-line.

As always, please contact the NASAA research team with any questions or to request custom visualizations.
