Tracking demographic differences among US artists and arts managers

The NEA has issued three new research briefs that can help cultural funders and administrators to monitor and promote equitable access to arts labor opportunities.

Grounded in the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS), the briefs approach a priority topic on the NEA’s five-year research agenda:

'What is the state of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in the arts? What progress has been made in achieving these outcomes for arts administration, employment, learning, and participation? What are some promising practices and/or replicable strategies in these domains, and what are appropriate markers of success?'
