With the Knowledge Bank, we have made it possible for you to have easy access to knowledge about the value that arts have for children and society. We hope that you will find it to be useful and inspiring.

In the Knowledge Bank, you find short references of publications, articles and videos with links to central research and evidence about the effects the arts have on children’s development, learning and health. The Knowledge Bank is under constant development in cooperation with CNA’s partners, researchers and experts.
