Nebraskans for the Arts is your arts advocacy organization. Representing over 100 arts organizations and hundreds of individual members across the state, NFTA advises policy makers, elected officials, and community leaders on the importance of strong arts-education in our schools, the economic impact of the arts in our communities, and the benefits of pro-arts policies for Nebraska.
