Long Island Arts Alliance Announces The Economic Impact of The Arts on Long Island

The newly released Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) is an economic and social impact study of the nation’s nonprofit arts and culture industry. Building on its 30-year legacy as the largest and most inclusive study of its kind, AEP6 provides detailed findings on 373 regions from across all 50 states and Puerto Rico—ranging in population from 4,000 to 4 million—and representing rural, suburban, and large urban communities.

In partnership with Americans for the Arts, Long Island Arts Alliance coordinated the study of Nassau and Suffolk Counties with generous funding from the Long Island Community Foundation. Over the past year, we have gathered insights from almost 1,000 attendees at various arts and culture events throughout Nassau and Suffolk to report on the social and economic impact the creative sector has on the Island. We've connected with over 400 cultural nonprofits, as well as other stakeholders, to understand the arts landscape's role in COVID recovery.
