Title: Value by design: Cultivating demand for the arts in Washington State
Author: Wold Sipher, Amanda
Abstract: This master’s project explores the economic, political, and social factors affecting demand for the arts in Washington State and investigates how state-level arts organizations are positioned to cultivate demand through advocacy networks. The researcher uses a mixed-methods approach drawing on theories from cultural economics and public policy to conduct a collective case study of Washington State Arts Commission and Washington State Arts Alliance Foundation programs and initiatives. Data collection includes the use of interviews, observation, and content analysis of publicly available documents related to organizational policy and procedure. Based on these case studies, the researcher identifies various “supplier-induced demand” initiatives supported through advocacy coalition frameworks. Finally, the researcher discusses areas of future research.
