April 10, 2018 at 3:30PM
Healthy communities have healthy arts communities. Learn about NCAR's Arts Vibrancy Index which ranks more than 900 communities across the country, examining the level of supply, demand, and government support for the arts in each city. Find out where your community falls on the related Heat Map, with rank scores on all measures for every U.S. county. Understand what makes a city vibrant in the arts and the different elements that come into play to foster that vibrancy. Discuss how communities can boost vibrancy and why it matters to their overall health.
