Founded in 1994, the Center for Arts and Culture is an independent think thank that "aims to broaden and deepen the national conversation on culture and cultural policies." One of the Center's core missions is to function as a place for public discussions of cultural issues and policies throughout the United States. To this end, the Center commissions research, facilitates public roundtables, and publishes a number of research reports and guidebooks for practitioners and policymakers. On their site, visitors can read about their public programs (most of which take place in Washington, DC) and the Center's history. The publications section of the site is particularly impressive, as visitors can download works dealing with a number of germane topics, such as globalization and cultural diplomacy, copyright issues in cultural policy, and national investment in the arts.
