The Arts Mean Business

The Clackamas County Arts Alliance has joined Arts & Economic Prosperity 5, a national study measuring the economic impact of nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences. The research study is being conducted by Americans for the Arts, the nation’s nonprofit organization advancing the arts and arts education. It is the fifth study over the past 20 years to measure the impact of arts spending on local jobs, arts industry income paid to local residents, and revenue paid to local and state governments, generated by the local arts industry.

As one of nearly 300 study partners across all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, the Clackamas County Arts Alliance will collect detailed financial data about our local nonprofit arts and culture organizations such as our theater and dance companies, museums, festivals, and arts education organizations.
