With the generous support of the Ford Foundation and Doris Duke Foundation, in January 2016 the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in collaboration with the British Council, Brandeis University and Theatre Without Borders convened an interactive forum with arts presenters and other arts and community stakeholders from the US and around the world to focus on how our field can play a greater role at the local level in this critical area of need. We came away with a better understanding of options and opportunities, as well as recommended strategies, to initiate and support arts-led approaches that effectively develop and sustain community cohesion in times of crisis.

The British Council created a final report on this session, which is available HERE.
