AFTA Economic Impact Survey

Every five years, ArtSpeak partners with Americans for Arts, an organization focused on funding for the arts, to conduct a quantifiable data collection survey on the combined spending of audience and nonprofit arts and cultural institutions.

There are two very important stakeholders in the Arts and Economic Prosperity 5 Survey:

Volunteers and Nonprofit Organizations

In order to capture data from our audiences, we had to conduct at least 800 audience intercept surveys in the 2016 calendar year. THANK YOU to all the volunteers that worked with us in 2016.
