Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6)

AEP6 is the sixth economic impact study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry in the U.S. This study is conducted approximately every five years to gauge the economic impact (on employment, government revenue, and household income) of spending by nonprofit arts and culture organizations and the event-related spending by their audiences.

In Connecticut, the AEP6 study is a statewide effort and the Connecticut Office of the Arts would like to thank our local and regional partners who are invested in the success of this effort.
