Coffee with COPPeR: Economic Impact Study Results

In 2016, we partnered with Americans for the Arts to lead an in depth study of the economic impact of our local arts community as part of the national Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 (AEP5) study. It was the third time we had lead the study on behalf of the Pikes Peak region, which is conducted every 5 years. The Cultural Office succeeded in gathering organizational data from 87 nonprofit arts organizations (an increase of 70% from the previous study in 2011) and 867 audience surveys at 15 local arts & cultural events (an increase of 33%). Thank you to everyone who participated!

The results are now in, and they are impressive!

 

 

 

Join us at Coffee with COPPeR on Wednesday, July 12 at 8 a.m. for a local summit on the results, featuring special guest Randy Cohen, VP of Research & Policy at Americans for the Arts.
