The results are in and they are impressive!
As partners with Americans for the Arts, The Lincoln Arts Council led the arts community in gathering data for Arts and Economic Prosperity 5. Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 is Americans for the Arts’ fifth study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry's impact on the economy.
The arts are essential to the health and vitality of neighborhoods, cities, states and our nation. They enhance community development, create jobs, spur urban renewal, attract new businesses, draw tourism dollars, and create an environment that attracts skilled and educated workers. When you partner with local arts, you partner with the whole city.
