|"Consultation of research which has been already produced on the social impact assessment of cultural sector activities covered studies conducted since the beginning of the 90’s and until the present year (2016). These were collected through a search for the terms ‘cultural impact,’ ‘art impact,’ and ‘social impact of the arts/culture.’ Within these coordinates of time and concepts a selection of 46 references was found for the analysis. A critical assessment of each reference was made to produce an outline of the work done so far on key topics."
