On March 10, 1997, Alan K. Simpson served as the lecturer for the annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy presented at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. The Honorable Alan K.

This issue of Monographs will provide an overview of cultural diversity as it relates to the local arts agency field, as well as raise difficult questions, offer suggestions for the future and profile local arts agencies addressing cultural equity and cultural diversity. Given accelerating changes in demographics in many cities across America, it is no wonder that local arts agency administrators have been increasingly challenged to more accurately reflect the composition of their communities in their programming.
