OAPN Announces 2021 Keynote Speaker - Randy Cohen (Americans for the Arts)

Ohio Arts Professionals Network is thrilled to announce that Randy Cohen, the Vice President of Research at Americans for the Arts, will be our 2021 Conference Keynote Speaker! 

Randy has not only been empowering arts advocates since 1991, he also stands out as a noted expert in the field of arts funding, research, and using the arts to address community development issues.

He publishes Americans Speak Out About the Arts, the nation’s largest public opinion study about the arts, and produces the two premier economic studies of the arts—Arts & Economic Prosperity, the national economic impact study of nonprofit arts organizations and their audiences; and Creative Industries, a mapping study of the nation’s 675,000 arts businesses and their employees.

Randy's 10 Reasons to Support the Arts blog received the Gold Award from the Association of Media & Publishing—their top honor for best blog post of the year. Randy led the development of The National Arts Index, the annual measure of the health and vitality of arts in the U.S. and the National Arts Policy Roundtable, an annual convening of leaders who focus on the advancement of American culture—launched in partnership with Robert Redford and the Sundance Institute.

A sought-after speaker, Randy has given speeches in all 50 states, and regularly appears in the news media—including the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and on C-SPAN, CNN, CNBC, and NPR.
