ARTS ECONOMIC IMPACT

"The nonprofit arts and culture sector is a $719.8 million industry in metro Atlanta. This spending supports 23,514 full-time equivalent jobs and generates $64.5 million in local and state government revenue" – Arts & Economic Prosperity, 2017

This national study by the Americans for the Arts is conducted every 5 years to understand the economic impact of the arts. The latest study for the Atlanta region (Atlanta and 10 counties) is available and will be discussed at the following program.

Forum on Arts & Economic Impact
Monday, November 13
Fox Theater

The numbers are very impressive, especially when realizing they only represent nonprofit arts and culture organizations. The report gives arts and culture organizations a powerful tool in advocating for support. It also includes a calculator to determine the impact (jobs created and local/state revenue generated) down to a single organization.

Joan Compton of the Fulton County Arts Council and the Cultural Arts Alliance at Johns Creek will participate as a panelist at the November 13th forum.

Johns Creek City Council supports Performing Arts Feasibility Study

At the August 21st Johns Creek City Council Meeting, the Council voted to approve the allocation of the 2017 Hotel/Motel tax with an ammendment to include up to $50,000 for a Performing Arts Center feasibility study.

View the meeting video. It was a long meeting, so use the video index to watch the Public Comments when several advocated for the feasibility study funding and view Agenda Action Item 5, which shows the Council's discussion and vote.

Thank you, Mayor and City Council for your support of the arts in Johns Creek!
