December forum: Arts Uplift! The Economic and Social Impacts of Art Programs in Central Oregon

For the first time, Central Oregon has made the list for the Arts & Economic Prosperity Report, a study by Americans for the Arts that details the impact of nonprofit arts organizations across the nation. In 2015, the total expenditure for arts programs in Central Oregon reached $34 million. The impact of arts programming goes beyond the economic and has social impacts that particularly enrich the lives of our youth.


Please join us for this uplifting and in-depth look at Central Oregon’s art community.
