Arts & Economic Prosperity

Did you know?

The nonprofit arts industry and its audience have a $72 million economic impact in the Pikes Peak region each year and help to generate and support 2,168 jobs. These are just some of the findings in the most recent Arts & Economic Prosperity Study (AEP4) report, which was produced locally in 2012 by COPPeR in cooperation with Americans for the Arts.

The next Arts & Economic Prosperity Study, AEP5, is already underway, and will be collecting data throughout calendar year 2016. Click here for a PowerPoint presentation with more information about the current study. The results of the AEP5 study will be reported publicly in June of 2017.
