Thursday, Feb 28 | 4:15 – 5:15 pm | Taubman, NYE A, 5th floor, Harvard Kennedy School

In a world increasingly dominated by social media and technology driven culture, are our nation’s existing arts and cultural organizations still relevant? Is art and culture a public good—and if it is—why do we uniquely fund it as a private good? In this session, Jim, Sunil, Carol and Dennis will share the latest research around these issues and the linkages between capitalization, demography and participation and what the future holds for the arts. The session will also outline the Hauser Center’s most ambitious arts initiative since its inception, The Initiative for Sustainable Arts in America.

The Frontline with Faculty Series is a venue for Harvard faculty affiliated with the Hauser Center to share their work and research with faculty colleagues, as well as students in an informal setting that will allow for spirited discussion, debate and exchange. The seminars link faculty experts from Harvard Schools and beyond on a wide range of topics.  The Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations at Harvard University seeks to expand understanding and accelerate critical thinking about civil society among scholars, practitioners, policy makers and the general public, by encouraging scholarship, developing curriculum, fostering mutual learning between academics and practitioners, and shaping policies that enhance the sector and its role in society.

    Reminder (from the CMF intro page): CMF Meet-Ups are member-driven; that is, if you would like to meet up with other members, it is up to you, as a member, to post your plans on the event message board. I am not able to attend every event, so if no one posts plans, then no one meets up. - Steve
