Based in Washington, D.C. and New York, Americans for the Arts is primarily interested in "representing and serving local communities and creating opportunities for every American to participate in and appreciate all forms of the arts." From their homepage, visitors can learn about their most recent advocacy efforts and also learn more about creating and supporting arts opportunities in various communities across the country. A good place to start on the site is the "Information & Services" area. In this section, users can learn about joining their cultural policy listserv and also access the National Arts Policy Database. The database is a tool that allows users to view over 8000 records that include news articles, program profiles, and research abstracts related to arts policy and practice. Visitors should not leave the site without looking over their insightful and frequently updated weblog.
