Americans for the Arts is our #3 top arts and culture nonprofit at the national level. Our experts credited this organization for its influence on the field and advocacy efforts to improve government funding of the arts. Its ability to build a network to coordinate advocacy efforts also received repeated praise from experts.
This is Amy’s experience with Americans for the Arts as a professional with expertise in the arts field. Amy contacts AFTA frequently with requests for information and services.
As a member of Americans for the Arts, the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville relies upon AFTA’s myriad of services in order to serve our local community at the highest of levels. Just one example of the leadership and direct service provided is the top-notch research studies that AFTA has led in audience spending and economic impact. Our local arts agency has never been able to conduct such broad data collection as was provided through the partnership with AFTA.
Another example would be the engaging, thought-provoking professional development opportunities that are provided at its national conference. The annual event is packed with opportunities to interact with experts in the field. At the local level, we have often showcased these speakers at our own events after hearing their remarks at the national conference.
Finally, the professionals at Americans for the Arts truly set a very high bar when it comes to serving the individual needs of its hundreds of members. We call upon its staff of experts time and again, and always receive prompt, robust answers to our inquiries and challenges.
