Fey: Why invest in arts and culture in Berwyn
The arts are fundamental to our humanity. They inspire us, fostering creativity, goodness and beauty. The arts help us express our values, build bridges between cultures and bring us together regardless of ethnicity, religion or age.
Researchers have demonstrated that a high concentration of the arts in a city leads to higher civic engagement, more social cohesion, better child development and lower poverty rates. A vibrant arts community ensures young people are not left to be raised solely on a pop culture and tabloid marketplace.
Students with an education rich in the arts have higher grade point averages and standardized test scores, lower drop-out rates and better attitudes about community service. Students with four years of arts or music in high school average 100 points better on their SAT scores than students with 1.5 years or less of arts training.
