What the Ballot Box Results Mean for the Arts

Nina Ozlu Tunceli

It’s hard to believe that the 2010 elections were 20 days ago today.  For those of us who work in politics the day is akin to a holiday but just because the elections our over it doesn’t mean our work is finished – in fact we have a lot ahead of us.  Now is the time when we sit down and figure out what the results from the ballot box mean for the arts and arts education.

Political junkies aren’t the only ones who should care about the election results though.  What happened on November 2, 2010 will have a far reaching impact on arts and arts education organizations throughout the country.

Nina Ozlu Tunceli, Chief Counsel of Government and Public Affairs at Americans for the Arts and Executive Director of the Arts Action Fund, was kind enough to take a few moments to share her greatest insights from the 2010 election with me.  I encourage you to take a few moments to listen – you might find yourself caring about politics more than you think.

For members of Americans for the Arts, check out the Post-Election Impact Webinar from November 18.  You can also check out the 2010 Congressional Arts Report Card to find out how legislators voted for the arts this year.
