Arts & Economic Prosperity IV Survey
Your Voice Counts! 

And we need your help to make it heard.  The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has partnered with Americans for the Arts (AFTA) to conduct an economic impact study on how art and culture contribute to New Hampshire’s prosperity.  The two-part survey will be carried out this summer and into the late fall of 2011 and includes information gathered from non profit cultural organizations and responses from people attending arts activities of all types throughout the state.

AFTA has prepared a simple, one-page survey for those attending the theater, concerts, festivals, workshops and other cultural events.  The State Arts Council is looking for volunteers throughout New Hampshire to help encourage audience members to complete the short survey.  Help is especially needed in the Lakes, Monadnock and North Country Regions and in the Manchester, Nashua and Hanover areas. 

A volunteer training session will be offered where volunteers will be briefed on the economic impact study and given suggestions on how to engage the public and encourage the completion of the audience survey.  Special buttons will help identify New Hampshire State Council on the Arts volunteers. 

This is a unique opportunity to help the State Arts Council compile data that allows us to understand the economic impact of art and cultural events. Questions? Please contact Cassandra Mason, Chief Grants Officer at (603) 271-7926 or email
