Economic power of Vermont Arts and Culture assessed

MONTPELIER—Vermont is participating in one of the nation’s largest studies to gauge the economic power of the nonprofit arts and culture industry, and it needs audience input.

The national study, Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6), is the sixth national study of its kind and is administered by Americans for the Arts. Conducted about every five years, the study measures the economic impact of spending on employment, government revenue, and household income related to the nonprofit arts and culture industry. AEP6 involves 387 participating communities representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Now through April 2023, Vermont audiences attending select in-person arts and cultural events, performances, and exhibits will be asked to take a brief electronic survey, either on their own smart device or using a venue-provided device. Survey questions will ask about event-related spending and attitudes toward the cultural event.

Vital anchors for many of Vermont’s communities,

3 Reasons Liberal Arts Graduates Are Qualified For MBA Programs And Business Careers

Whether you majored in philosophy or photography, the value of a liberal arts degree has been a subject of debate for years.

The Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership is looking for artists with diverse skills and backgrounds (visual artists, dancers, actors, musicians, writers, etc) to join the roster of Directory of Pennsylvania Artists in Education.

How Making Art Helps Improve Mental Health | Science

Patients who are struggling with everything from ADHD to eating disorders have turned to art therapy for help.
Illustration by Emily Lankiewicz

Like many, Andrea Cooper felt increasingly isolated and lonely during the coronavirus pandemic. Cooper, a retired graphic designer and amateur folk musician who leads a grant-funded art program for cancer patients at Baltimore’s Mercy Medical Center, is a highly social person. So when the pandemic led to the cancellation of many of her activities and events, and caused others to be switched to Zoom, she missed her usual face-to-face connections with others.

As the pandemic dragged on, her mental health began to suffer even more. Eventually, Cooper’s depression got so bad that she had to be hospitalized. As part of her recovery, she participated in a ten-day inpatient program and began working with an art therapist.
