This seminar tells the story of how the state's creative economy has been promoted through a collaboration of the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, Regional Technology Strategies, Mt. Auburn Associates, the Arkansas Arts Council, the Arkansas Science & Technology Authority and the Arkansas Association of Two-Year Colleges showcasing a multi-year initiative designed to strengthen Arkansas' creative industries, which are the third largest economic cluster in the state. Learn how these partners worked together to document the unique composition and impact of the state's creative assets, then used that information to promote cultural development and foster cultural economic vitality. Don't miss this virtual event if your state is also interested in rural development strategies, community college collaborations or economic impact research.
