Americans for the Arts introduces "Arts + Social Impact Explorer"

To help people begin the journey of discovery to deeper understanding of the arts’ long-term social impact, Americans for the Arts has produced the Arts + Social Impact Explorer, an online primer that draws together top-line research, example projects, core research papers, and service/partner organizations about 26 different sectors, all in an effort to make more visible the incredible, wide-reaching impact of the arts.

Created with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this highly interactive, visual tool is meant to drive conversation, and is accompanied by customized Fact Sheets that are downloadable and printable for sharing with board members, public and private sector policymakers, and more. It also is mobile-friendly, and allows for easy conversations with decision makers to help expand the dialogue about the arts and their value to communities. Functioning as the surface of a deep “lake” of knowledge, all impact points and research within the Explorer comes with citations and links so that people can visit the websites of all the example projects, click directly to the research referenced, and engage directly with the other partners doing this work around the country. Star exploring!
