Michigan: Creative State Michigan

Creative State Michigan is a new resource featuring information on arts participation, arts education and the economic impact of the arts. The report was produced by ArtServe Michigan and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) to showcase the diverse contributions that the cultural sector makes to the state’s productivity, as well as the return realized from the state’s investment in the arts.

For every $1 Michigan invests in arts and culture, $51 is pumped back into the state's economy

The report draws from a blend of data sources that include MCACA grants information, Cultural Data Project information, state tourism records and Americans for the Arts figures. Data elements for this inaugural edition of the report were selected for their relevance to the state’s current policy goals and for their ability to be tracked reliably over time.
