The Economic Activity Study of Metro Denver Culture documents the over $1.7 billion annual economic and social impact of the arts on our community. CBCA, working with Deloitte Consulting LLP, DualDraw, LLC and Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, assembles biennial data on the impact of cultural activity in the greater Denver economic community. Statistics include employment, operating and capital expenditures, resident and tourist attendance, tax revenue and educational outreach. The study is a key tool in understanding the return on investment for public arts support, economic development and tourism efforts related to arts and culture.
