Civic Engagement and State Arts Commissions: Engaging Leaders for the Arts
State Arts Commissions engage community volunteers to grant millions of dollars on an annual basis. Grantmaking has been robust and retracted during periods of growth and economic expansion to periods of recession which does not impact positively or negatively upon the commitment of arts commissions’ volunteers. This study offers readers the opportunity to learn about how statewide arts commissions promote civic engagement through volunteerism in their grantmaking components and other roles offered to citizens.
