Radio Smart Talk for Friday, Oct. 26:
A new study conducted by Americans for the Arts has been released by Citizens for the Arts in PA which details the impact of Pennsylvania's non-profit arts industry. The report, Arts and Economic Prosperity in the State of Pennsylvania, is available for download in full, or by region.
On Friday’s Radio Smart Talk, with guest host Cary Burkett from the witf Arts and Culture Desk, we’ll discuss the findings of the new report, take a look at the economic importance of maintaining a vibrant arts community, and talk about how the arts might be a pathway for creating jobs in the future.
We’ll hear from Jenny Hershour, managing director of Citizens for the Arts in Pennsylvania, Alan Hineline, CEO of Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, and Robert Welsh, executive director of Jump Street.
