Arts & Economic Prosperity Forum

March 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Please join us for a discussion with Randy Cohen, VP of Research at Americans for the Arts, delving into the findings of their The Arts & Economic Prosperity Survey (AEP6). This major study was released by Americans for the Arts, a national leader in arts advocacy and data gathering.

The AEP6 survey provides a comprehensive analysis of the economic impact of arts and culture nonprofits in 2022, nationally as well as specifically for Pinellas County and participating local municipalities. This study, the sixth and latest in a series conducted over the past three decades, is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind.
We are eager to share this important information about the economic impact of our arts community and look forward to seeing you there.
