Based on several years of field research in communities around the U.S., this brief presents a framework for better capturing and measuring arts, culture, and creative expression at the neighborhood level. Specifically, the brief discusses four domains essential to understanding community cultural conditions and dynamics: presence of opportunities for cultural engagement, cultural participation, impacts of participation, and systems of support for cultural expression.
