Impact of the Arts in Georgia

Georgia communities are successfully using the arts as a part of their local economic development efforts. The creative industries in Georgia represent a combined $37 billion in revenue, including 200,000 employees earning $12.1 billion in wages. Georgia’s creative economy not only contributes to the state’s bottom line, but also draws millions of tourists each year, adds significantly to the quality of life and vitality of every community, and represents the bulk of Georgia’s rich cultural identity. Our thriving creative economy contributes to Georgia being not only an ideal place to do business, but also an incredible place to live and explore.
