Share the news!

AEP5 is the most comprehensive economic impact study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry ever conducted, and we hope you’ll be part of the movement to share the news far and wide.

We encourage you to use these sample social media posts to share the results. Feel free to adapt the messaging to fit your voice, and use our AEP5 Calculator to estimate the findings for your community. Be sure to ask colleagues, organization members, and other interested parties to like and share your posts, and always use the hashtag #AEP5 to help us build buzz around this important story. (You can also draw inspiration from others who are posting using the #AEP5 hashtag!)

Social media posts with images get more attention and reach more people! Use photos of the arts in your own community with your posts, or download and use any of the images in this folder, contributed by many of our national study partners. Please give study partners a shout-out if you use their photos; a file of credits is included in the folder. Also included is a short (90 second) video overview of the AEP5 results that you may download and post directly to social media.
