  25. PA Dutch CVB Member Briefing Arts and the Economy March 11, 2009

  26. So… When you hear “The Arts” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Which phrase best reflects how you think of The Arts? Couldn’t live without them They’re nice Never think about them They are over-rated They are not important Contributor to economy and economic development What, if any, connections do you see between the arts and tourism?

  27. Tourism and The Arts: Much in Common

  28. Interesting Commonalities There is a unique concentration of both tourism and the arts in Lancaster City. Neither of these industries is fully understood, leading to misperceptions. Neither is always perceived as being a significant economic contributor. Most of the players in both are rather small businesses. Owners and artists can struggle at times with the business aspect of their professions. What are other commonalities??

  29. The Arts: More Than a Pretty Face The arts are a major contributor to QUALITY OF LIFE. The arts can and do impact ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. The arts contribute to REVITALIZATION EFFORTS. The arts can serve to CONNECT CITY AND COUNTY from a tourism perspective.

  30. The Arts and Its Artists

  31. Investing In Creativity: Stats of Interest There are 2.1 million artists working in the U.S., according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2001), up from 700,000 in 1970. Artists represent 2% of the labor force. 97% of adults say they value art in their lives, but only 27% said artists contribute a lot to society. Artists earn less, on average, than other people with comparable education and skill sets. In 1996, their median annual earnings from work as an artist was $5,000.

  32. Investing In Creativity The economic benefits of the arts greatly transcend and outlive any of the normal cycles… That is why business invests in the arts—even when times are tough, and when there is increased pressure to manage money carefully. John Ong, Chairman Emeritus, B.F. Goodrich Company

Nonprofit arts and culture organizations contribute to the business community; their spending in 2005 was estimated at $63.1 billion. Further, they are employers, producers, consumers, and key promoters of their cities. Source: Arts & Economic Prosperity III, Americans for the Arts, 2006.

  36. Growth & Economic Impact Stats, cont’d The arts and culture industry leverages a significant amount of event-related spending. This spending generated an estimated $103.1 billion of revenue for local merchants and their communities in 2005. Non-local attendees spend twice as much as local attendees, demonstrating when a city attracts cultural tourists, it harnesses significant economic rewards.
