The 2017 National Arts Policy Roundtable, “Re-Animating Democracy: Arts as a Change Agent in a Changing Times,”  took place on September 14-16, 2017 in Sundance, UT. This year's topic focused on the unique capacity of the arts to inspire, inform, promote, and contribute to change at all levels – in society, in communities, and within governments. Discussions focused on the integral role of artists in advocating for social innovation and change, and the need for the arts community to support these artists in their work – especially projects that might put them at risk, politically or otherwise.
