AEP6 is the sixth economic impact study of the nation’s nonprofit arts and culture organizations and its audiences. During this virtual event, Americans for the Arts will debut the latest economic and social impact findings gathered in partnership with 373 regions from across all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Learn the highly anticipated national impact numbers and hear from arts partner communities, elected officials, artists, and national strategic partners about how and why this study is vital to the work they do in building stronger communities. The AEP6 Launch event will be hosted by the legendary multi-award-winning actress, singer, dancer, and civil rights activist, Rita Moreno.
The data regarding the economic impact of arts and culture on the Pikes Peak region’s local economy will be released at a later date.
