Sacramento Creative Economy Meeting – February 2019
February 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm PSTFree
This Creative Economy Meeting is for all creatives in Sacramento that either live, create, play or work in the city of Sacramento. Our goal is to help Sacramento creatives thrive, by building a community force that highlights creative opportunities and finds actionable solutions to drawbacks. In previous meetings, Sacramento Creative Profiles came up as something desired. We may have found a solution.
Sacramento365 will participate in this meeting to seek input from the group about what creatives are looking for with a Creative Profile platform and give an overview of the platform, so we can best utilize this useful free asset to expand reach. Sacramento Metro Arts will be attending, adding what they are up to and any upcoming project opportunities.
Last meeting, we encouraged all creatives to call city council members. Ask city council to place a creative person on the measure U advisory committee, so Sacramento Creatives do not get pushed aside again. 10% of measure U was advised to fund The Cultural plan – Creative Edge. If we don’t speak up and ask that they follow through on this, it may not happen. You can still call and make a difference. Numbers to call are shared below.
Call city council and ask for one or both:
1. Ask city council members to please ensure that creative persons are on Measure U committees. We want the Sacramento Creative Economy to be on their minds, in their hearts, and at the table.
2. Creatives: Marsh Wildman and Donna Phillips Shellooe, have applied to be on the measure U advisory committee. Let city council know that these are creatives that they can support.
This Creative economy meeting is open to Creatives of Sacramento hosted in an eco creative space called The Atrium. Looking forward to connecting.
