Public Forum Examines Economics and Arts

Event Description:
How do arts and culture impact the economy of southwestern Pennsylvania?

The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council will provide answers when Cal U hosts a public forum from 9:30 a.m.-noon April 22 in the Kara Alumni House.

The Arts Council will present the findings of its "Arts, Culture & Economic Prosperity" study at this community-wide event.

Presented in conjunction with the Arts Education Collaborative, the session will examine the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture sector, which generates $136.2 billion nationwide and $2.6 billion in Pennsylvania.

The forum at Cal U will focus on the related themes of economic impacts of arts and culture, K-16 arts education, and workforce development, and the effect of the arts on the region’s residents and businesses, now and in the future.

Administrators, artists, educators, funders and policymakers will be on hand to discuss arts-based education, urban development and college collaborations, as well as effective advocacy strategies on behalf of arts education.

Speakers will include Acting University President Geraldine M. Jones, Sarah Tambucci, ED of Arts Education Collaborative, and Jim Denova, vice president of the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.

Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of Arts, Culture, & Economic Prosperity (Allegheny County, Pa.), a summary of Pennsylvania’s statewide economic impact study and additional materials.

The free event is open to the public and includes a light continental breakfast. Free parking is available on campus in the River Lot (Lot 4), off Second Street.
