Advocating for systemic change in public arts and culture funding.
A CREATIVE COMMUNITY ON THE RISE
Wisconsin’s public investment in the arts 49th in the nation. Our creative sector growth is not keeping pace with the rest of the country (8.44%, compared to a national average increase of 14.43%).
Milwaukee is the only city of its size without a publicly-funded office working on behalf of the arts and culture sector.
28% of surveyed Milwaukee-based creatives are strongly considering relocating to another city due to a lack of creative opportunities, jobs, and support here.
The City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County collectively reinvest just 0.3% of the economic impact directly generated by arts and culture.
