Summary

The arts and culture have a quantifiable effect on communities and their broader societies, enhancing economies, education systems and even health care.1 Students who study the arts are considered more employable, and are more likely to remain employed throughout their lifetime.2 Nearly 60 percent of people who have attended a cultural program in the last year report good health.3 In the United Kingdom, the In Harmony music program, engaging students in some form of musical activity daily, improved 78 percent of the students’ performance scores in their core subjects.4 Students from low income backgrounds who are participating in the arts are three times more likely to complete their degree than those who are not.5 Simultaneously, according to Princeton University, the arts can improve perceptions of communities, promote diversity and reduce crime rate.6 Additionally, the arts provenly raise cognitive abilities in its participants, increasing self esteem and lowering stress levels.7 Show References
