Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs Joins Americans for the Arts’ National Study of the Economic Impact of Spending by Nonprofit Arts and Culture Organizations and Their Audiences
We are excited to announce that Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs has officially joined Americans for the Arts’ latest national economic impact study, Arts& Economic Prosperity 5 (AEP5)! Our participation in this important research project will allow us to quantify the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture industry in Miami-Dade County.
TO COMPLETE THIS STUDY, HOWEVER, WE NEED YOUR HELP! The study requires that we collect detailed financial and programming information from all of the nonprofit arts and culture organizations serving Miami-Dade County, as well as a minimum of at least 2500 audience surveys from people who are attending arts and culture events. We will be asking you to help us with both of these two tasks during the course of calendar year 2016.
The AEP5 study is being conducted by Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts in America. Americans for the Arts has conducted similar economic impact studies in more than 400 U.S. communities since 1994. Their methodology is sound. In fact, their economic impact data is used consistently by the Congressional Arts Caucus on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives to support federal arts support. For a full list of the 300+ AEP5 study partners, visit: www.AmericansForTheArts.org/AEP5Partners.
Thank you in advance for your support and participation in this very important study! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our AEP5 project manager, Kelly Allocco at (305) 375-4636 or [email protected].
