Convention for the Arts in Washington, D.C.

The Americans for the Arts and the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies will hold their second joint convention July 17-20, 2004, in Washington, D.C. at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.

During Participate 2004, attendees will come together and learn from each other in the creation of a national action agenda, detailing how organizations can affect individuals through the arts and increase their community engagement.

The convention will include several breakout sessions covering such topics as civic engagement in politics and community service; civic engagement in bridging differences, building tolerance and creating connections among communities; neighborhood livability/infrastructure; community economic development; lifelong learning; and philanthropy and funding of the arts. Participants also will travel to one of ten neighboring communities throughout the area to experience the impact the arts have on the community.

Americans for the Arts, with offices in Washington and New York, is the nation's leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts in America. Established in 1996, it has more than 5,000 organizational and individual members across the country.

The National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA) is the membership organization serving the nation's fifty states and six jurisdictional arts agencies.
