Creativity Connects - Submit your Bright Spots
As part of the NEA's 50th anniversary, the agency launched the leadership initiative Creativity Connects, which examines how the arts connect to the nation’s creative ecosystem. An interactive database highlights "bright spots" - successful projects across the country where arts and non-arts collaborators work to further common goals. Let the NEA know about additional “bright spot" projects they can add to this resource.
