A summary of CCX 2015 that outlines the structure and goals of the CCX concept, shares participant feedback, and an analysis of the needs and suggestions made by leaders in arts-based community development work in New England. The goal is to help NEFA and other service providers advance the role that the creative sector plays in building healthy New England communities.
This study focuses on the economic impact of New England’s arts and cultural nonprofits. It provides aggregate data on the number, spending, and employment of New England’s nonprofit arts and cultural organizations; data on their overall economic impact, and individual stories that illustrate that economic impact. Comparisons are drawn to prior years and other economic sectors wherever possible in an effort to understand the subset.
These data demonstrate the size and financial statistics of cultural nonprofits in New England from fiscal year 2007 (before the changes of the economic downturn of the latter part of 2008), organized by New England state, organizational discipline, and nonprofit type.
