"The research is clear: The creative and cultural sectors are a powerful force for helping communities large and small turn the corner on the pandemic’s economic shocks." Check out this article by Mitch Landrieu of E Pluribus Unum and Pam Breaux of NASAA.

Communities across America are trying to spur business growth, bring back tourists and boost employment … and the arts add power to those recovery strategies. This column on Governing.com distills timely new evidence on the arts, creativity and economic renewal.
