ETA was launched in November 2015 to provide a space for the dissemination of research-based policy analysis and commentary by cultural economists. After a full year of activities, we are happy to have published 21 posts. The enthusiasm is shared by our many followers who visited the blog over 10,000 times.

In the New Year, we will continue publishing two high quality posts each month and will provide easy accessible summaries of good economic research on the arts and culture.

The coming posts will cover, among others, topics on diversity, education of artists and there will be a special issue on women in March (celebrating International Women’s Day). Stay tuned for more!

From the ETA editors, Karol J. Borowiecki, Cedric Ceulemans, Trilce Navarrete, Andrej Srakar and Marilena Vecco, we wish you lots of reading pleasure in the coming year.
