Commission for Arts and Culture
Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 provides evidence that the nonprofit arts and culture sector is a significant industry in the City of San Diego—one that generates $1.1 billion in total economic activity. This spending—$553.6 million by nonprofit arts and cultural organizations and an additional $546.4 million in event-related spending by their audiences—supports 35,914 full-time equivalent jobs, generates $894.4 million in household income to local residents, and delivers $116 million in local and state government revenue. This economic impact study sends a strong signal that when we support the arts, we not only enhance our quality of life, but we also invest in the City of San Diego’s economic well-being.
