Creative Economy - #2

WDCEP recently announced the next step in what is now being called the "Creative DC Action Agenda". From the WDCEP web site -
On Wednesday, May 25, WDCEP and its partners held the kick-off meeting for the Creative DC Action Agenda, with winning contractor Mt. Auburn Associates, Inc.

Mt. Auburn will be working with Phillips Preiss Shapiro Associates, Inc., Regional Technology Strategies, Inc., and Technical Advisors Kingslow Associates, LLC and Bill Strickland.

The Creative DC Action Agenda is part of a broader Creative Economy Initiative, which is a collaboration between WDCEP, Office of Planning, and the DC Commission of the Arts and Humanities.

The Creative Action Agenda will lay out an action plan for strengthening the District's creative economy, expanding employment and business development opportunities, and enhancing neighborhoods.

Future posts will follow the progress of the initiative with, hopefully, information about how artists and other creatives can get involved.
