The Nevada Arts Council has partnered with Americans for the Arts in their nationwide study of the arts and culture sector via the Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) study. The Nevada Arts Council is the official statewide partner of the AEP6 study with the Americans for the Arts. Three municipalities have bought into the AEP6 contracted study to get specific reports for their region including the City of Reno, the City of Las Vegas, and Clark County. AEP6 data collection will took place from Summer 2022 to May 2023 via audience-interpret surveys at local arts and culture events across the state to better understand the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture industry. The Nevada Arts Council acknowledges the importance of the AEP6 data collection and report in better understanding how arts and culture nonprofits drive our economy by creating jobs, generating commerce, and increasing tourism.
