Greater Portsmouth Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) Resources for Arts/History/Culture Organizations
Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) is a study of the economic and social impact of the arts, being conducted nationally by Americans for the Arts. In the Greater Portsmouth area the study is being conducted in partnership with the City of Portsmouth. For this study, Greater Portsmouth includes Portsmouth, Rye, and Kittery, ME.
The data collected will allow you and the City of Portsmouth to tell your cultural tourism story and provide you with a powerful narrative on how the arts impact your community. It will also aid your organization as you fundraise and apply for grants in the future.
The audience‐intercept survey is the tool used to learn about the people who attend arts and cultural performances, events, exhibits, venues, and facilities. It collects critical information about event‐related audience spending on categories such as food and beverages, gifts and souvenirs, local transportation, and lodging. Demographic information is also collected and the survey is anonymous.
Below you will find links to resources to help your organization participate in this important effort. It is recommended that you review the training presentation that was offered on May 12, 2022, which will explain the use of the resources. If someone from your organization has not yet been trained regarding the use of these materials or if you have any questions about the Greater Portsmouth’s participation in this survey, please contact Project Manager Lauren Rosen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Paper surveys can be used by all organizations. The Batch Cover Sheet must be attached to surveys collected on a specific date. So if your event runs multiple days, a Batch Cover Sheet needs to be completed and attached to each day’s surveys.
- You can also offer your attendees the ability to access the survey using a QR code, which would not require a Batch Cover Sheet because those results are logged online. There are 2 QR Codes available for this. Organizations whose mission statement (or guiding principles) is centered in advancing, creating and/or preserving artistic and cultural traditions rooted in communities of color should use the BIPOC QR Code and BIPOC QR Code Flyer. All other organizations should use the general OR code.
