Creative EconomyThe Creative economy in Illinois

Presented to the Illinois Creative Economy Roundtable
February 24, 2014
Presented by: Katie Davison, Mim Evans, Pat Inman, Brian Richard, and Diana Robinson

Developing, supporting, and nurturing the creative economy is increasingly a key economic development strategy for states, cities, and regions. As communities compete for talent, innovative thinkers, and new business, and strive to enhance the quality of life for their citizens, there is growing recognition that the arts are anchors for attracting and improving these assets.
Just like any promising economic sector, the creative economy needs industry-specific policies and incentives to thrive. On March 19, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn announced the launch of the Illinois Creative Economy Initiative to be led by Arts Alliance Illinois. As part of this initiative, the Alliance assembled the Creative Economy Roundtable, a team of leaders and experts from both the public and private sectors charged with determining how Illinois can leverage its creative assets to grow jobs, strengthen the workforce, and build more vibrant communities. The presentation lays a foundation for framing the creative economy.
