ADVANCING THE ARTS
IMPROVE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Students with an education rich in the arts have higher GPAs and standardized test scores, and lower drop-out rates.
STRENGTHEN THE ECONOMY
The arts and culture sector represents 3.25 percent of the nation’s GDP—a larger share of the economy than tourism and agriculture.
Arts travelers are ideal tourists, staying longer and spending more to seek out authentic cultural experiences.
The arts - music, creative writing, drawing, dance - provide skills sought by employers of the 3rd millennium.
Half of all healthcare organizations provide arts for patients and staff, because of their healing benefits to patients - shorter hospital stays, better pain management, and less medication.
Attendees at nonprofit arts events spend $24.60 per person, per event, beyond the cost of admission on items such as meals, parking, and babysitters.
The arts industry generates $135 billion in economic activity annually that supports 4.1 million jobs and generates $22.3 billion in government revenue.
The arts are fundamental to our humanity. They ennoble and inspire us - fostering creativity, goodness, and beauty. The arts build bridges between cultures, and bring us together regardless of ethnicity, religion, or age.
We believe in sharing events that do more than fill up space on your calendar— they’ll fill your heart. Sandy Springs Arts Calendar coming soon!
