Description

After an extremely well received and well attended inaugural panel discussion last year on the same topic that elevated the conversation, Choose954 & Pipeline Lauderdale are excited to host a follow up panel discussion addressing this crucial topic. The goal of this evening is to continue elevating the conversation and raising our communities consciousness about the importance of Arts & Culture relating to our Creative Economy, which supports our communities overall growth and development.

​Released in June 2017, the Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 is a report documenting the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and cultural industry. Conducted by Americans for the Arts​, the nation's nonprofit organization for advancing the arts in America, Broward County was one of 341 study regions across the country.

Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 (AEP5)​ is the most comprehensive economic impact study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry ever conducted.

  • The Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study provides compelling evidence that the nonprofit arts and culture sector is a $414.2 million industry in Broward County.

  • This industry supports 11,078 full-time equivalent jobs and generates $40.1 million in revenue for local and state government.

  • They spent $148m in 2015, leveraging $265.7m additional spending by their audiences; spending that pumped vital revenue into restaurants, hotels, retail stores, parking garages, and other local businesses.

Join us Tuesday May 1st at Pipeline Workspace Fort Lauderdale location as we highlight the importance of the Creative Economy in our burgeoning community, share the ways that our panel speakers are utilizing their businesses to support the arts, and discover ways that you and your organization can contribute to the conversation at this critical time. Recent budget cuts slashed Arts funding by the state upwards of 80%, now more than ever we need our community to rally behind our Creative Class as Fort Lauderdale continues developing into a world class community.
