Economic Impact

Arts are Great for Business

The Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 Study produced by Americans for the Arts shows that the nonprofit arts and culture sector is a $125.6 million industry in the City of Clearwater – one that supports 1,810 jobs and generates $24.6 million in local and state government revenue.

This study proves that investing in the arts and culture yields economic benefits to the community. The heart of this impact lies in the over 1.8 million individuals, both local and nonlocal, who attended arts and culture events within the City of Clearwater.

As a champion for the arts, the Clearwater Arts Alliance remains at the forefront, unwavering in our advocacy for the arts with our local governments.
