The Arts Matter to Local Tourism

May 8, 2019

It’s National Travel & Tourism week. The Arts matter to local tourism!! According to Americans for the Arts, “Cultural tourism can mean increased audiences for local events, more visitors to local galleries and museums, and greater support for local arts practitioners.

Cultural tourism can also bring broader economic benefits – for small businesses such as café owners and accommodation providers, taxi drivers and petrol stations – through increased visitor numbers and longer visitor stays.

Beyond the economic benefits, showcasing arts and culture can have a significant influence on building community and making people feel proud of their town or region.”
