National Arts Policy Roundtable Briefing 2020

The 2020 National Arts Policy Roundtable, “Put Creative Workers to Work: Reimagining Our Nation's Creative Workforce,” took place virtually on December 1-2, 2020.

Participants of the 2020 National Arts Policy Roundtable gathered virtually, for the first time in the program’s 15-year history, to engage in open dialogue about how local, state, tribal, federal, and private sector leaders can craft and implement policies that center creativity in recovery, just as President Roosevelt did with the Works Progress Administration (1935) and President Nixon did with the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (1973). The discussion was centered in part on the recent Put Creative Workers to Work policy proposal, which was co-crafted by over 100 cultural groups and individual creative workers and has been endorsed by over 2,100 organizations and individuals.
