About the Aspen Institute Arts Program
The Aspen Institute Arts Program was established to support and invigorate the arts in America, and to return them to the center of the Aspen Institute's "Great Conversation." The Program brings together artists, advocates, educators, managers, foundations, and government officials to exchange ideas and to develop policies and programs that strengthen the reciprocal relationship between the arts and society.
