Developed by the members of the Arizona Cultural Data Project Task Force, this research report provides a greater understanding of the breadth and impact of Arizona’s arts and culture sector. Using CDP data and other data sources, the study finds that through the development of jobs and critical revenue for neighborhoods, cities and the entire state, Arizona’s arts and culture organizations are significant contributors to economic health and competitiveness. The data shows how the sector promotes civic health and pride, and enhances Arizonans’ quality of life.
