New Engines of Growth: Five Roles for Arts, Culture and Design

On April 30, the National Governors Association announced the release of New Engines of Growth:  Fiver Roles for Arts, Culture, and Design. The report, prepared in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and NASAA,  focuses on the roles that arts, culture and design can play as states seek to create jobs, boost their economies and transition to an innovation-based economy. Abundant examples from states illustrate how arts, culture and design can assist states with economic growth by: (1) providing a fast-growth, dynamic industry cluster; (2) helping mature industries become more competitive; (3) providing critical ingredients for innovative places; (4) catalyzing community revitalization; and (5) delivering a better-prepared work force.
