Abstract: Through a short documentary film , I am examining how investing in local arts enriches a city's economy and quality of life. Part of Greenville's strategic development plan is finding ways to attract and retain residents. A way for cities to achieve this is by investing in the arts. In it's 2010 Arts and Economic Prosperity study , the North Carolina Arts Council found nonprofit arts and culture to be a $1.24 billion industry. Investing time and money increasing arts and cultural offerings is crucial to a happy city , although national arts programs are reportedly at risk of defunding.
