Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) is a study of the economic and social impact of the arts. It is being conducted by Americans for the Arts in partnership with the United Arts Council of Collier County. Specific questions about Collier County’s participation should be directed to Laura Burns (

The audience‐intercept survey is the tool we use to learn about the people who attend arts and cultural performances, events, exhibits, venues, and facilities in Collier County. It collects critical information about event‐related audience spending on categories such as food and beverages, gifts and souvenirs, local transportation, and lodging. These data will allow you and the United Arts Council to tell your cultural tourism story and provide you with a powerful narrative on how the arts impacts your community.

These surveys will be conducted at specific Collier County events via QR Codes, links, or paper surveys. Be on the look out for them! We sincerely appreciate your time in filling them out.
