South Arts recently updated our Publications page, which shares recent research in areas such as arts education, arts participation, the creative economy, folklife & traditional arts, international cultural engagement, presenting & touring, and the South.

Our current spotlight shines on recent research released by National Endowment for the Arts. “How Art Works” establishes a system map not just to provide guidance for NEA research, policy, and strategy, but also to establish a visual framework for understanding the entire arts ecosystem and how it interacts with other sectors of society.
