To promote study, research, and teaching of issues in public policy and arts administration as they affect and are affected by arts education in schools, museums, arts organizations, and community settings. In so doing, PPAA draws on theoretical concepts and research methods from the visual and performing arts, arts education, law, public administration, and the social, political, and administrative sciences; it thus seeks to widen the pedagogical and research bases of arts education, cultural policy, and arts administration. PPAA seeks to provide a network for exchange of ideas, resources, and news concerning policy, administration, and education of the arts.
