Past National Arts Policy Roundtables
History

The National Arts Policy Roundtable was launched in October 2006 by Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts, and Robert Redford, founder of the Sundance Institute, to promote cross-sector dialogue about how the arts can contribute to solving societal problems. Each Roundtable focuses on a specific, timely topic and yields a series of recommendations on public policies and private sector practices—with the goal of moving the issue from thought to action. The invitation-only Roundtable has convened nearly 300 top-level decision makers and thought leaders from the fields of business, government, the social sector, education, and the arts.
