The National Endowment for the Arts and the National Archive of Data on Arts and Culture are excited to introduce the second issue of Arts Research Quarterly.


This latest issue features articles on how investing in cultural consumption amenities in higher education affects student-level outcomes, how music intertwines with our daily lives and how our individual musical preferences are influenced by our diurnal patterns. Other topics dive into the role that culture plays in promoting gender equality, arts-based interventions for pain management and the prevention and treatment of substance use disorder (SUD), gender inequalities in the consumption and production of jazz, and more!


About Arts Research Quarterly: Produced in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Arts Research Quarterly samples recent research publications on the arts ecosystem and on the arts' value and impact for individuals and communities. The literature is based on secondary analysis of arts datasets, whether they are housed at NADAC or elsewhere.
