HomePrinceton University Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies - A Program of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs


The Princeton University Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies was founded in 1994 to improve the clarity, accuracy and sophistication of discourse about the nation's artistic and cultural life. Its programs and activities are designed to create an infrastructure of well-trained scholars who have access to regularly collected information about cultural organizations, activities and providers, and who produce timely research and analysis on key topics in arts and cultural policy.

CPANDA: Cultural Policy and the Arts National Data Archive

In 2008, the National Endowment for the Arts launched the 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA) on CPANDA, which will serve as the official source for the data. The SPPA is the primary source of information about the U.S. public’s artistic activities.

Formerly located on CPANDA's website, Quick Facts is a valuable tool for research and statistics on topics including artists and performers, funding issues, public attitudes, arts education, and arts organizations.
