The Arts and Human Development

 In 2011, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hosted a convening to showcase studies and evidence-based programs that have identified outcomes from arts interventions. The resulting white paper proposes a framework for long-term collaboration among the NEA, HHS, and other federal agencies to build capacity for future research and evidence-sharing about the arts’ role in human development.
