"The NEA's [National Endowment for the Arts] budget, did it go up or down this year? It's the simplest, most glaring metric out there, and it's a little reductionist," says Adam Huttler, the founder and executive director of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit organization that provides financial, logistical, and technological support for arts and culture.
Earlier this year, Huttler participated in a debate at The Economist, where he argued, "We must also abandon the notion that a strong arts policy begins and ends with public funding." Huttler spoke with Reason TV's Kennedy about how tax deductions for donations to the arts "dwarfs" NEA funding, and how "scrappy, DIY (do-it-yourself)" arts organizations are "breaking away from a lot of the old models of funding and support" with relatively new methods like crowdfunding and fiscal sponsorship.
