“The Art of Impact”
OVERVIEW: Philadelphia’s vibrant cultural sector does more than delight millions of people each year with entertaining performances and inspiring exhibits. Arts and culture fuels over $4 billion of economic impact each year and is a significant driver of tourism. But the arts are also a powerful tool for social impact in neighborhoods and communities across our region, from educating our young people and reducing isolation among seniors to relieving PTSD in veterans and helping people on the autism spectrum.
At this session the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, which tracks the economic and social impact of arts and culture and the fiscal health of the nonprofit cultural sector, will review its latest research, including a recent study of how perceptions of impact motivate giving among high-net-worth donors and what cultural organizations are doing to address many of our region’s most pressing challenges. This informative session will expand your understanding of how the arts are relevant and why they are one of Philadelphia’s most valuable public assets.
SPEAKER: Michael Norris, Chief Strategy Officer, Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance
