Mapping the Creative Economy

June 27, 2020, 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM

Session Type: Panel

The "creative economy" is a multi-faceted thing. Who's in, who's out? How many dollars does it generate--and when do those dollars start and stop being the result of "creativity?" What are the ingredients in a community that can foster a healthy, inclusive creative economy? How do you begin to measure impact? In this session, try to get some clarity!
Learning Objectives:
  • Learn about different definitions, research studies, and indicators that can be used to define the creative economy.
  • Discuss challenges and opportunities that exist to define the creative economy, and where the arts fit into the puzzle
  • Learn about models and recommendations from creative economy practitioners, and how their viewing different issues related to definitions, economic impact and value, and supporting artists and creative workers.
