Are you artistic? Do you paint, write, or dance? You probably don’t associate anything government with your love of the arts. Well, you’d be wrong! The National Endowment for the Arts (www.arts.gov) is a federal agency that promotes, strengthens, and funds community opportunities to participate and enjoy the arts. Recently celebrating 50 years of supporting the arts, the NEA is sharing its milestones with video clips, fun facts, and stories from around the country.
At the NEA website, you can apply for grants to further the art of you or your organization or you can read blogs that keep you up-to-date on happenings in the artistic communities, related news or personal opinions. You can listen to podcasts, watch videos, or learn from online webinars.
So take a break from work, school and the day-to-day doldrums and visit the NEA website and get inspired!
