Festivals create significant and wide-ranging impacts.

Access to arts education and professional development. Social and community wellbeing. Economic benefits to GDP and local business. Environmental sustainability leadership.

And much more.

We aim to understand and capture as many of these impacts as possible. If you are an academic or researcher ready and eager to delve deeper into the value and impact that non-profit arts and cultural festivals create, we hope to hear from you.
