This Article chapter discusses how the last two decades of academic literature and a range of popular publications have documented the importance of the role of the arts in community development (Eger, 2003; Goldbard & Adams, 2006; Matarasso, 2001; Phillips, 2004; Psilos & Rapp, 2001; Reeves, 2002; Williams, 1995). The main focus of much of this has been urban and regional development and regeneration. When the subject is contextualised in urban environments, the arts are linked to the enrichment of the quality of life for urban citizens and the enhancement of economic vitality.

Creative economy projects are depicted as appropriate for sustainable rural development, however, the various benefits/ challenges of initiating a creative economy in a rural setting are not properly known. The provided data and qualitative research with artists, planners, and residents of Chatham County, North Carolina, infers that, creative economic development projects can be more effective as economic strategies than as environmental and social justice strategies.The article suggests that difficulties stem from conditions specific to a rural setting, including a particular relationship with landscape, scarce resources for arts-based development, social isolation and fragmentation, different concerns for artists and planners, and the nature of rural gentrification.

In the ideal arts education program, the arts are an imperative part of every child’s school day. Ideally, The arts are taught on the same level as disciplines like English, mathematics, and foreign languages. The journal brings up how the arts should not be experienced as embellishments to the curriculum. Nor should they become isolated from the basic subject areas; they are part of the core of the educational program. The arts most commonly include visual arts, music, dance and movement, and theater arts (drama, mime, and pup- petry), but may also include folk art, creative writing, architecture, costume and fashion design, storytelling, and media arts. This emphasis on the arts is based on the premise that the arts are basic to the education of all students.
