Art and Economic Prosperity Partners Wanted

Georgians for the Arts is seeking eligible partners throughout the State of Georgia to help with the Arts and Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) research project led by Americans for the Arts.

An information session was held in late September, in which you can view the recording and the slide deck here.

Arts advocates know the arts provide numerous benefits, however, the economic impact of the arts resonates best with policymakers and the budgets they control. To that end, every arts advocate should have the best economic research available to make the case for better public policy.

Our goal is to recruit as many partners representing every region, county, city, town, and municipality in Georgia. Every partner, big or small, will have an impact on the research and findings. The more partners participating, the less the cost for all.

When completed, AEP6 will be the first authoritative report to show Georgia’s prosperity related to arts and its economic impact. No other organization or agency has research of this nature. Arts and Economic Prosperity 5 (AEP5) did not include any state-level research or reporting.
