Impressions of the Impact of the Arts on Quality of Life and Well-Being in Ontario
March 31, 2017
The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) commissioned Nanos Research to conduct a survey exploring Ontarians’ views on the impact of the arts on quality of life and well-being. Designed to update and expand on similar research undertaken in 1994 and 2010, this report provides an up-to-date picture of how the people of Ontario value the arts in their lives and in their communities.
The survey explored the views of Ontarians toward the public value of the arts across the following dimensions: quality of life, community well-being, identity and belonging, and government investment in the arts.
