Arts & Economic Prosperity 5


Business Council for the Arts is pleased to support Americans for the Arts (AFTA) in Arts & Economic Prosperity 5, a study designed to measure the economic impact of nonprofit arts and cultural organizations across the United States. This is the tenth impact study by BCA over the past 20 years, and the second consecutive one with AFTA. Surveys will be collected throughout the calendar year of 2016, and the results of the study will be released in June of 2017.

Arts organizations across North Texas are encouraged to participate in the study by completing a brief one-page survey. 


Cities participating in the North Texas study include Dallas, Fort Worth, Irving, Lewisville and Richardson. These communities will be producing unique reports tailored to their cities and aligning to create a study for the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington MSA. 


Many thanks to our additional partners for their help in collecting data for AEP5:
