Art Advocacy Has Never Been More Crucial

Supporting the arts has always been a key objective for NAMTA members but never has Art Advocacy been more crucial than it is today. Study after study has shown that including art-related activities in a child’s education will produce a smarter, more creative and successful student.

Advocating for the arts enhances communities and makes good business sense.

Namta recently received some photos from one of our 2019 Grant Recipients and wanted to share them with all of our members to remind all of you, at this difficult time, the importance to continue to keep the arts alive and thriving.  As Peter Kelly who works in Foundation Relations at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls comments – “it’s so awesome to see moments like these when our kids are having fun and expressing themselves.”  Thank you Namta members for helping to make this possible.
