Randy Cohen, Americans for the Arts vice president of research and policy, will be in Wichita next week to bring his organization’s "Arts & Economic Prosperity" report to our community. Wichita is one of 330 study regions across the United States that signed up for “Arts & Economic Prosperity 5,” the fifth national economic impact study of America's nonprofit arts and culture industry.
Using audience intercept and organizational surveys, along with a proprietary input-output model customized to each community built by economists at Georgia Tech University, Americans for the Arts measured the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture industry and its audiences on Wichita. Arts and Economic Prosperity is an invaluable advocacy tool that provides hard data proving that the arts mean business—and dollars—in our community.
Americans for the Arts is the leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education in America. It is dedicated to representing and serving local communities and creating opportunities for every American to participate in and appreciate all forms of the arts. The last study was completed in 2012.
