Creative Economy Policy Summit @ Knight Arts Blog
It is a tricky and delicate practice to place value on something typically considered as intuitive and personal as art-making. But that is the main concern of the many organizations and speakers that played a part in the Creative Economy Policy Summit: Growth Opportunities for Michigan–a daylong seminar featuring thought leadership in the field of Creative Economics.
The conference, which was organized by Creative Many Michigan and counted Knight Foundation as a supporting sponsor, brought together dozens of the biggest names in Detroit arts infrastructure, including foundation heads, placemakers and local leaders. There were also special guests and panelists from the National Endowment for the Arts, industrial design firms, civic engagement groups and many others.
