Support the local arts

Support the local arts

Research by the Uni of Pennsylvania has shown that “a high concentration of the arts in a city leads to higher civic engagement, more social cohesion, higher child welfare and lower poverty rates.” Not only that, but buying a local artist’s piece can inspire them to continue creating and contributing to your community’s culture. When looking for a birthday gift or a piece to decorate your apartment, try hitting up a local art gallery or an arts and crafts show to see what you can find.
