Nashville Arts Coalition is a group of individuals and organizations who advocate for public policy and public funding that supports a healthy arts ecology in Nashville.
- We believe a healthy arts ecology has a positive impact on the economy, culture, and education.
- We believe that increased advocacy for the arts in the city as a whole will benefit our entire community.
- We believe in being focused and flexible in our work together with equitable sharing of effort, learning and reflection on progress along the way.
