Event description
How do we change the narrative of the starving artist to the narrative of the thriving artist?

About this Event

Nationally, artists are increasingly recognized for their work as entrepreneurs, civically-minded problem-solvers, and agents for social change. Yet, the persistent public stigma around artists – as starving or transient – complicates the ability of artists to be recognized for the value of their work and to assign value to their work. This event will present new research that provides national and Nashville-specific insights on current perceptions of artists and their creativity. A panel discussion will follow on the implications of this research for policy in Nashville.

The research and panel event are supported by the National Endowment for the Arts Research Labs program with Award #DCA 2017-05. The research was conducted in partnership between Northwestern University, the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, & Public Policy at Vanderbilt University, NORC at the University of Chicago, and the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville.
