Advocacy

SNAAP data -- both aggregate as well as institutional -- are frequently used to advocate for the value of an arts education:

  • Within your own institution
  • In your local community
  • With state and other public sector funders
  • With donors and private sector grant makers

SNAAP data is used for advocacy in these examples:

  • Raymond Tymas-Jones blogs about how SNAAP findings shed light on the benefits of skills acquired through arts education.
  • Steven Tepper writes about artists in the workplace for Fast Company
  • Sunil Iyengar analyzes the SNAAP Special Report, "Painting with Broader Stokes: Assessing the Value of an Arts Degree".
  • A Letter to the Editor that uses SNAAP findings to demonstrate the impact of the arts in a community.
  • The Dean of the University of Florida, College of Fine Arts uses SNAAP data to talk about the value of arts training on pg 4.
  • SNAAP National Advisory Board Members publish op-eds that advocate for arts education based on SNAAP data. Ann Markusen, an economist, writes about important traits of arts graduates.
