Today, Mayor Jerry Sanders and officials from San Diego’s arts and culture community held a press conference to release the FY11 economic impact report. Funding from the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture helped support 68 organizations in neighborhoods throughout the city. This support pumped $170 million into San Diego’s economy in the last fiscal year, and leveraged $202 million in revenue.
A press conference was held at 10:30 am this morning, at the San Diego Museum of Natural History in Balboa Park. Participants included: Mayor Jerry Sanders; Mark Cafferty, Director of the Economic Development Corporation, Vicki Reed, Chair of the Commission for Arts and Culture; Alan Ziter and Seema Sueko, Co-Chairs of the San Diego Regional Arts and Culture Coalition; Victoria Hamilton, Executive Director, Commission for Arts and Culture; Commissioners from San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and Members of San Diego’s arts and culture community.
The Arts and Culture Economic Impact Report is issued annually by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and the San Diego Regional Arts and Culture Coalition.
