Image for New Primer on Creating Change through Arts, Culture, and Equitable Development

Apr 10, 2017

PolicyLink, a research institute that works to advance equitable government policy, has recently released a report that highlights the proven areas within which arts and culture advance equity. The report, entitled Creating Change through Arts, Culture, and Equitable Development: A Policy and Practice Primer, describes the role of arts and culture in nine core areas:

  • Art and Culture
  • Health and Food
  • Youth and Education
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Open Spaces and Recreation
  • Infrastructure and Community Investment
  • Technology and Information Access
  • Economic Development and Financial Security


According to PolicyLink, “Within each policy chart there are goals, policies, and implementation strategies that can help achieve communities of opportunity. These policies have yielded such outcomes as: support for Native artists in reservation-based cultural economies, the creation of a citywide cultural plan, engaging low-income youth of color in using digital media, and efforts to address redevelopment, employment, food access, and environmental justice.”
