This session will explore the impact of municipalities and public agencies on arts, culture, and creative economies.  While many of our Network sessions focus on the role of private and community funders in supporting and strengthening arts and culture, this conversation is an opportunity to look more deeply at the role the public sector plays.
Some of the questions we will pose to our guests include: 
  • What role do municipalities/city leaders/public agencies play in the intersecting space of arts and culture and economic development of towns and cities in the Commonwealth?
  • What are examples of how arts and culture is integrated into economic development planning? Or left out of such planning?
  • What are the risks and unintended consequences of this work?
  • How can public and private funders best collaborate towards a shared vision of creative economies?
Speakers include:
Stephanie Fortunato, Director of Special Projects at the Global Creative Districts Network and NEFA Advisory Committee Member
Annis Sengupta, Director of Arts & Culture at the Metropolitan Area Planning Council
Pedro Soto, Senior Fellow on the Creative Economy at MassDevelopment
