CreativeGround is a strictly regional database containing only New England states. A project of the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), CreativeGround is brought to you through ongoing partnerships with the National Endowment for the Arts, the Connecticut Office of the Arts, the Maine Arts Commission, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, and the Vermont Arts Council. While CreativeGround is unique, there are many other efforts underway aimed at capturing the breadth and impact of the creative economy across the nation. To learn more about these efforts, we suggest contacting the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), your regional arts organization (RAO), state arts agency (SAA), or other jurisdictional/local arts agency, committee, commission, or body. In addition, there are numerous private, nonprofit, and commissioned projects and studies in the field.
