Hyperlocal: Arts & Local Economies

About this Webinar
We are currently existing in the era of the Gig Economy, and the skills that are now needed to affect the creative class and growth look quite different than they once did, especially with investment being pumped into cities and urban neighborhoods. The creative class is essential to driving innovation and changing the future of our cities. Yet few creative professionals feel like they are sufficiently equipped with the business savvy required to succeed in today’s global marketplace.
