The presence of art is linked to increased neighborhood livability, community identity, and social wellbeing. Research ties the benefits of arts participation to the informal education and empowerment of the community, and to a sense of pride and community ownership. While many aspects of wellbeing are linked closest to economic status and ethnicity, in neighborhoods with limited economic resources, engagement with arts and culture can create social capital that exerts a strong, positive effect on wellbeing. This evidence suggests "arts assets" can play an important role in equitable outcomes.
