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.

All topics will be established as an ongoing conversation and commitment, so the discussion will not end with the event. Following the discussion, there will be a short Q&A following the panel with the audience.
Attendees will be treated to light refreshments courtesy of High Gravity Hip Hop and vibes courtesy of ABLRadio.com during the opening/closing mixer.
