What is the Creative Economy? Over the last decade, cities and countries worldwide have studied how creative industries like design, advertising, media, film, theater, architecture and more are influencing technology, place making, workforce and economies.
In Arlington, the creative economy has significant impact in both for-profit and non-profit realms. In its most recent Arts and Economic Prosperity report, Americans for the Arts calculated Arlington’s direct economic impact of the non-profit arts alone at more than $97 million.
Programs that foster a creative sector have come out of a great array of partnerships with businesses, higher education and professional organizations.The ADClub of DC, YES&, Fors Marsh, Virginia Tech Research Center, Arlington Community Federal Credit Union, Columbia Pike Artists Studios, APAH and CPRO are some of the leaders putting creativity on par with innovation.
