Atlanta’s Creative Economy

091014Today, the Tomorrows partnered with ATLxHIP-HOP and the One Music Festival to produce a unique panel discussion focused on Atlanta’s Creative Economy.

Atlanta is a culture-rich community…
How do we maintain Atlanta’s creative economy?

As a community, we need to discuss methods of strengthening Atlanta through more communication and collaboration among the different segments of local commerce. Atlanta’s unique cultural and entertainment scene is a culture-rich community that benefits the city, as a whole, and all of its supporting elements. This culture-rich community is a creative economy… and a stronger creative economy will make the city stronger.

Moderated by Fahamu Pecou // ATLxHIP-HOP

Panelist include…
+ LaRonda Sutton // Mayor’s Office of Film & Entertainment
+ Courtney English // Atlanta Public School Board President
+ Sherri Scott // JWT

+ Rohit Molhotra // Center for Civic Innovation

Panelists discussed various topics and offer real-time solutions with an emphasis on communication and collaboration. The discussion was established as an ongoing conversation and commitment, so the discussion will not end with this event.
