About the Event: Randy Cohen will present findings from our 2016 Arts & Economic Prosperity Study that shows arts & culture events and their audiences bring over $18.5 million into the local economy and support 659 jobs. Calculate your organization's economic impact with the AEP 5 Calculator. Then, fundraising expert Maryann Lindberg will facilitate a discussion and break out sessions with special guest presenters on ways to utilize and integrate these findings into your organization's marketing, branding, advocacy, and fundraising.

Arts are businesses and part of the economic fabric of the Monadnock Region!


Other events September 5th-7th with Randy Cohen will include workshops with businesses, town and regional planners, and community members to present the data and discuss how it can be leveraged for economic and community development. Stay tuned for further updates, or sign up to get involved!
