During 2008, SIAP collaborated with Animating Democracy, a program of Americans for the Arts, on an investigation of conceptual and methodological issues involved in studying the relationship between the arts and other forms of civic engagement. The project was a part of the Arts and Civic Engagement Impact Initiative led by Animating Democracy with support by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. In 2009 SIAP made a site visit to the Tucson-Pima Arts Council in Arizona and developed a strategy for translating the report's findings into a planning document for TPAC.
