A recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education comments on the ‘economic value’ of an arts education. The study ( by the National Endowment for the Arts) is interesting as it seeks to follow the relationship of arts and culture industries to GDP ( a countries’ gross domestic product ). It would be interesting to unearth Canadian data, but the summary results suggest arts education is a path that leads to greater creativity and innovation in the work force.
On February 26, OAC hosted Arts Days at Queen’s Park(AD@QP). I would like to thank the 60 plus arts representatives, some of whom travelled a great distance, for meetings with 55 MPPs, who were happy to meet with artists and other arts representatives to hear about the important contribution the arts make to their communities.
