Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy roundtables

alliance for creative economy logoThe Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy initiative has a series of events coming up over the next month or so focused on the state of the local "creative economy" and how to grow it. Blurbage:

Join ACE and the Center for Economic Growth as we announce our latest Creative Economy data, and share your thoughts on how we can work together to develop and grow creative jobs and opportunities in the Capital Region.
ACE wants to know what you do, why you're here, and how we can make this region the best place in the U.S. for people to live, work, and grow creative businesses. Music, food, networking and more. You're welcome to attend any or all of these Roundtable events, and need not be employed in the Creative Industries to participate.

The first event is at Overit in Albany on February 7. The full schedule is below. The roundtables are free to attend, though registration is requested (details at the link above).

ACE defines the creative economy as including: design, media, visual arts and handcrafted products, performing arts, heritage and preservation, and artisanal food and agriculture.

Each event is from 5:30-7:30 pm.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
