The Power of the Arts

For those of you who follow my posts, you'll know that I'm a huge advocate for the Arts. Studies show that the arts and creativity drive our economies and enhance education in profound and far reaching ways.  If you want to go a bit deeper, here's a great article on a conference held last fall on The Role of the Arts in Educating America for Great Leadership and Economic Strength.  There's even a link to the report that came out of the conference, which includes information on how the arts assist achievement and give a competitive edge in education, in the workplace, and even the global economy.
