NEW Creative Minnesota Road Show Coming Soon to a Town Near You!


Seventeen new local studies of the economic impact of the arts and culture will be coming out through October from the Creative Minnesota Project and Minnesota Citizens for the Arts. You are invited to join us for Town Hall meetings and presentations of the results all across the state. You will not believe the results!

Creative Minnesota is a snapshot of spending by nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences as well as other indicators of the sector’s health and impact on the economy in 2013. The statewide study quantifies the economic impact from 1269 arts and culture organizations in every corner of the state, in addition to information about jobs created, local vs. non-local attendees spending, nonprofit arts and culture organizational budgets, and artist employment levels. 

Creative Minnesota was developed by a collaborative of arts and culture funders in partnership with Minnesota Citizens for the Arts (MCA). Americans for the Arts (AFTA) was commissioned to calculate the economic impact of the arts. Creative Minnesota and additional research about Minnesota’s arts and cultural community can be downloaded for free at: creativemn.org.
