Arts help Orlando economy: Arts help Orlando economy, study says - Orlando Sentinel

Wed, 08/08/2012 - 18:25 -- rprice

When seven Central Florida counties were factored in, the study showed that the arts contribute $264 million annually to the economies of Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Volusia, Brevard and Polk counties.

Conducted by Americans for the Arts, aWashington, D.C.-based national advocacy group, the study did not measure ticket sales or entry fees, but tallied other spending created by cultural organizations — everything from the groups' rents and payrolls to patrons' expenditures on transportation and baby sitters.

Spotlight on Central Florida: Summer Arts Camps | culturebuildsflorida

Fri, 07/27/2012 - 14:45 -- rprice

All of the large arts organizations in our area have summer camps. The Orlando Repertory Theatre alone has over 50 summer camp offering for students. The Orange County Regional History Center brings history alive with their artistic process. Students – ranging from 5 years of age through middle school – learn about ancient Egypt through maps, mummification and the painting of hieroglyphs. The Orlando Shakespeare Theater is teaching Shakespeare, make-up, history and costuming through an innovative “Zombie Shakespeare” camp. Crealdé, a local visual art center, has a finely tuned model.

Yes, it's true. I can never shut up about the Orlando Fringe. Fringe is what BarCamp will be in 50 years, becuase they have the same humble beginnings. Actually, if you take Internet Years into account, we are more like 3 or 5 years away from having unconferences that last 2 weeks and appeal to a wide audience. (I know because I want to create one)
