Social impacts and benefits of arts and culture : a literature review.: CH4-187/2016E-PDF

"In Canadian and international cultural research communities, it is widely acknowledged that the arts and culture sector generates a broad range of economic and social benefits to individuals and society. With the launch of the Culture Satellite Account in 2014, Canada has taken an important step forward in measuring the economic contributions of culture, heritage and sport to national and sub-national GDP, however, it has prompted a call to standardize measurement and reporting of the social impacts of culture.
