Power of Story: Making Art Matter. Live from the Egyptian Theater.
 We know that artwork—whether it’s film and television or in the literary, visual, and performing arts—can create real impact: alter lives, build communities, bridge cultures, and foster social change. So what steps do we need to take to enhance the role of the arts in our country? What role should public policy play, and how can artists and policy makers work together? If we are facing a crisis of creativity, what investment should we be making in arts education for children? We’ve asked a diverse group of advocates to share their vision for energizing the arts and humanities in America.
