Richard Maloney, PhD ’10, presents paper at Brookings/NEA symposium on economic impact of art and culture

Maloney '10 delivers paper at Brookings/NEA symposium on arts and economic impact

Maloney, Assistant Professor of Arts Administration and Assistant Director of Arts Administration at Boston University, co-wrote the paper along with Greg Wassall, professor of economics and faculty in the Law and Public Policy program. The research builds on one of the three central questions of Maloney’s dissertation, “Cultural Economic Development in Three Massachusetts Communities: Policy Process and Impact.” Maloney’s dissertation examined “the process through which three mid-sized Massachusetts’ municipalities – Barnstable, Gloucester and Fitchburg – established and implemented cultural economic development policies using funding provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Adams Arts program for the Creative Economy.”

His recent paper accepted for the Brookings/NEA symposium further explored the question: “What elements contributed to the development and implementation of the cultural economic development policies in each of the case study communities?” Specifically, what were some of the characteristics of cities and towns that applied for the Adams arts program?
