 Mass. Creative Economy Network

The Massachusetts’ Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development announced that it is accepting applications for organizations to be a part of the newly established Creative Economy Network. The Network, directed by Arts Extension Service and Western MA's friend, Helena Fruscio, will coordinate resources, track progress, and promote efforts to support these industries on the local, regional, and state-wide level. The creative industries include the many companies pushing the limits of creativity in the marketplace, including innovative video game companies, cultural non-profits, design, marketing and architecture firms, and the Commonwealth’s authors, architects, movie directors, artists and musicians. The Action Agenda identifies Five Areas of Action as key to the success and expansion of these industries: Business Development, Access to Capital, Visibility, Talent and Space. Press release
