YOUR SUPPORT OF NJAI COUNTS. 

Corporate, Foundation and Municipal Support Does More Than You Might Think.

Urban and regional planners, elected officials, and other decision makers are increasingly focused on what makes places livable. Access to the arts inevitably appears high on that list, however knowledge about how culture and the arts can act as a tool of economic development is sadly lacking. This important sector must be considered as a source of amenities and pleasant diversions in addition to its role as a wholly integrated part of the engine that drives local economies.

Dinner and a show go hand-in-hand. Attendance at arts events generates income for local businesses—restaurants, parking garages, hotels, retail stores. An average arts attendee spends $24.60 per event, not including the cost of admission. On the national level, these audiences provided $74.1 billion of valuable revenue for local merchants and their communities. 

In 2010, nonprofit arts and culture organizations pumped an estimated $61.1 billion into the economy. Nonprofit arts and culture organizations are employers, producers, consumers, and key promoters of their cities and regions. Most of all the are valuable contributors to the business community.

We are looking for corporate and community partners to help NJAI/OSPAC bring music, food and fun to our community. Will your business participate in the growth and development of the local economy through attracting cultural tourists to our new, world-class summer programing?

Arts & Economic Prosperity IV - a report issued by Americans For The Arts - gives us a quantifiable economic impact of nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences. Using findings from 182 regions representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, an input-output economic model is able to deliver national estimates.

Quick Facts

Nationally, the industry generated $135.2 billion of economic activity—$61.1 billion by the nation's nonprofit arts and culture organizations in addition to $74.1 billion in event-related expenditures by their audiences. This economic activity supports 4.13 million full-time jobs and generates $86.68 billion in resident household income. Our industry also generates $22.3 billion in revenue to local, state, and federal governments every year—a yield well beyond their collective $4 billion in arts allocations. Despite the economic headwinds that our country faced in 2010, the results are impressive.

Audiences

While the ratio of local to nonlocal attendees is different in every community, the national sample revealed that 31.8 percent of attendees traveled from outside of the county in which the event took place and 68.2 percent of attendees were local (resided inside the county).

Previous economic and tourism research has shown that nonlocal attendees spend more than their local counterparts and this study reflects those findings. Data shows that non-local attendees spent twice as much as local attendees ($39.96 vs. $17.42), demonstrating that when a community attracts cultural tourists, it harnesses significant economic rewards.

Arts & Economic Prosperity IV demonstrates that America's arts industry is resilient in times of economic uncertainty, and is also a key component to our nation's economic recovery and future prosperity. Its statement that business and elected leaders need not feel that a choice must be made between arts funding and economic prosperity proves that they can choose both.

Nationally as well as locally, the arts mean business!

WIth a veteran team of award-winning broadcasters, programmers, producers and agents, OSPAC is primed to be a thriving contributor to the City of West Orange, and the region surrounding it. Please join us.
