Arts & Culture Generates $21.4 Million in Waterbury Region!

The Arts & Culture Collaborative recently participated in the Americans for the Arts’ Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6), an economic and social impact study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry.

Nonprofit arts and culture organizations are businesses. They employ people locally, purchase supplies and services from nearby businesses, and engage in the marketing and promotion of their cities and regions. Their very act of doing business—creating, presenting, exhibiting, engaging—has a positive economic impact and improves community well-being.
