economic impact of arts and culture
City of Darebin
This project was an economic and social impact assessment of the value of the creative industries in Darebin, Victoria. It drew on a range of data and consultation to quantify the sector, with a more detailed focus on live music; an important part of Darebin's creative landscape. An economic impact model was constructed for Darebin and results compared with using the Council’s own in-house model to produce a more reliable set of estimates for the value of the creative sector, and of the Council’s contribution to its development. Twitter data was also used in a sentiment analysis of attitudes towards cultural events in the City.
