Stand For The Arts, Ovation TV’s national advocacy platform, raises awareness, protects access, and encourages action on behalf of the arts. Our mission is to ensure the arts remain a vital part of our society and to reinforce the inherent value that the arts, and the creative economy, provide on a national level.

The arts are essential to our economic recovery. The Power of Art™ is that it heals us physically, mentally, and emotionally. Here at Stand For The Arts, we will continue to advocate for increased federal funding to arts workers and the arts sector so that the industry can continue to thrive.
