At its heart, the Capital Region Creative Economy Project is an economic assessment. It’s about business development, increasing jobs, and driving tourism to the Capital Region of upstate New York.

The Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy has come together to contribute to this community-based collaborative project to assess the Capital Region’s creative assets and define action steps to leverage related opportunities. The creative economy is defined as:

  • the enterprises and people involved in the origination, production, and distribution of goods and services in which artistic and cultural content gives the product or service value in the marketplace.

LISTEN to Karen Hitchcock describe the value of the Creative Economy and why it’s an important strategy to pursue.
