Arkansas: Creative Economy Project
Unveiling the Creative Economy in Arkansas: Strategies to Increase Creative Capacity and Competitive Advantage is the fourth report in the Arkansas Creative Economy project. The report includes a summary of some of the most important findings to date, illustrates preliminary outcomes from a series of creative community building grants, and offers recommendations on how Arkansas’s creative economy can be enhanced. The Arkansas Creative Economy Project is a multiyear initiative that was highlighted in the National Governor’s Association report Arts & the Economy: Using Arts and Culture to Stimulate State Economic Development. The project was the result of a partnership between the Arkansas Arts Council, Arkansas Science & Technology Authority and the Arkansas Association of Two-year Colleges, was developed by Regional Technology Strategies with Mt. Auburn Associates, and was supported by a grant from the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. For additional information about the project, contact Arkansas Arts Council Executive Director Joy Pennington.
