Calling all Local Government Leaders, Policy-Makers, Community Stakeholders, and YOU!

Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and Montgomery County participated in the national 2023 Arts and Economic Study by Americans for the Arts (AEP6). For the first time, the study expanded beyond economic and financial data to learn about the value that non-profits produce through arts and culture. How does this impact the social and economic well-being of Montgomery County, VA?

Join Randy Cohen, VP of Research for Americans for the Arts as he visits Montgomery County’s arts and culture institutions and reveals the powerful economic impact of arts and culture in our community.
