The cultural sector is a vital part of the UK’s economic success – delivering on a global and local scale. Economic impact studies are a great way to demonstrate the impact of our work and make the case for continued investment in arts and culture?
A number of tools have been developed that allow value to be measured using economic valuation methods but choosing the right one is not straightforward.
If you are thinking about undertaking an economic impact study such a study, read our Measuring the economic benefits of arts and culture report published May 2012 - it sets out practical guidance for any arts or cultural organisation thinking about conducting research into its economic benefits.
