Raleigh Arts Plan
The City of Raleigh’s Office of Raleigh Arts led the development of the Raleigh Arts Plan, a ten-year master plan to strengthen arts and culture for all of the City’s many communities and people. The planning process began in July 2014 and ended with City Council adoption of the Plan in February 2016.
Economic Impact of the Arts
The nonprofit arts and culture industry generates $531 million in annual economic activity in the City of Raleigh, supporting 18,894 full-time equivalent jobs and generating $53 million in local and state government revenues, according to the Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 National Economic Impact Study (AEP5), an economic impact study conducted by Americans for the Arts.
In addition to spending by organizations, the nonprofit arts and culture industry leverages $364 million in event-related spending by its audiences. As a result of attending a cultural event, attendees often eat dinner in local restaurants, pay for parking, buy gifts and souvenirs, and pay a babysitter. What’s more, attendees from out of town often stay overnight in a local hotel. In Raleigh, these dollars support 10,837 full-time equivalent jobs and generate $38.6 million in local and state government revenues.
