what are action areas?
Americans for the Arts has the following external goals:
- Lead and serve individuals and organizations to help build environments in which the arts and arts education thrive and contribute to more vibrant and creative communities.
- Generate meaningful public and private sector policies and more leaders and resources for the arts and arts education.
- Build individual awareness and appreciation of the value of the arts and arts education.
We concentrate our efforts in two major areas, increasing the national clout of the arts, and providing the local tools needed to advance the arts and arts education. We engage and mobilize leaders from the public and private sectors, as well as arts organizations and artists, to accomplish this work. To achieve our goals, Americans for the Arts employs key strategies in five areas called "action areas."
