Humanities and the Arts

The arts—from visual arts and literature to performing arts such as music, drama, and dance—provide benefits that extend beyond individual enjoyment and personal enrichment, to include exposure to new perspectives, sharpened learning skills among young people, expanded capacity for empathy, and stronger social bonds in communities. RAND studies have shown that the many benefits of arts education and involvement can be sustained and enhanced by strengthening public appreciation of humanities and the arts.
