Project Description

The Urban Institute’s Arts and Culture Indicators in Communities Project (ACIP) attempts the difficult and vanguard task of statistically representing a community’s “Cultural Vitality,” defined as “a community’s evidence of creating, disseminating, validating, and supporting arts and culture as a dimension of everyday life.” Those supporting the project feel that the arts and creative expression do not receive proper representation within policy-making discussions. The index serves as a resource to give voice to that crucial aspect of a community’s quality of life.
