on the Arts and the Humanities
The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH) was established by White House Executive Order as an advisory body to the President on cultural policy. The committee is comprised of leading artists, scholars, museum practitioners, and philanthropists. The PCAH provides recommendations to the President and the heads of the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and Institute of Museum and Library Services to advance wide-ranging policy objectives in the arts and humanities. As part of its mandate, the PCAH will consider how the arts and humanities sectors can positively impact community well-being, economic development, public health, education, civic engagement, and climate change across the United States.
