There is greater strength in numbers. Strategic partnerships are crucial to Americans for the Arts because they champion an idea that is central to our day-to-day work: the arts are a vital tool—a “secret weapon”—that can address wide-ranging challenges across sectors and from every corner of our country.

Together, we can strengthen arts in the economy, in schools, in communities, in the military, in our healthcare system, and more. Our list of partners is as extensive as our scope of work. Learn more about Americans for the Arts’ strategic partnerships.
