Americans for the Arts is pleased to release our 2018-2020 Strategic Plan. This three-year planning document describes how the organization—in alliance with our members, partners, and stakeholders—will build recognition and support for the extraordinary and dynamic value of the arts, and lead, serve, and advance the diverse networks of organizations and individuals who cultivate the arts in America.

By working in innovative ways, using the Strategic Plan as a guide, Americans for the Arts will foster informed leaders, communicate the value of the arts, and increase resources for the arts over the next three years. Ultimately, we aim to ensure through this work that the arts are recognized as integral to the lives of all people and essential to healthy, vibrant, and equitable communities across the nation.

The 2018-2020 Strategic Plan was created by our Board of Directors with input from our members, field leadership council members, staff, strategic partners, funders, and others. You can find the plan (with versions in both English and Spanish) with information on our stakeholders, vision, mission, goals, and strategies here
