Why and how will building an arts policy community promote more meaningful support of arts and culture? How can policy research and analysis help private grantmakers, as well as public arts agencies, implement funding policies to achieve their purposes? How can foundation policies appropriately intersect with public policies at local and national levels? This session sought to demystify policy; convey ways in which policy action can help achieve foundation goals and enhance program area funding; and outline practical steps through which arts funders can engage policy issues.
