Friday, July 11, Point Park University, 204 Lawrence Hall, 201 Wood Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 

8:30 – Noon, breakfast included

Guest speaker: Ray Gastil, Director of City Planning, Pittsburgh, PA

Presented by the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council in association with the Pittsburgh Technology Council and Echo Strategies  

Free, RSVP here

This gathering builds on the June 19th Connecting Pittsburgh Creatives I event in which artists and non-profit arts & culture leaders identified how assets of the arts & culture sector can spur and sustain cross-sector partnerships.  On July 11th we’ll bring leaders from the creative clusters of communications, data technologies, design, entertainment, and software & hardware into the conversation.  Leaders from the public sector, higher education, community development, and service organizations will join in too!

How can Greater Pittsburgh become the next Austin, Boston, or Portland as a center for creativity, innovation, and economic growth? The 2014 Pittsburgh Creative Industries Report says one key is collaboration among clusters of the creative industries. What specific roles can creative industries clusters play? How can other sectors assist?

You’re invited to explore these questions through a variety of small group interactions on July 11th. We expect these conversations will identify specific action plans and policy initiatives to support arts-based, cross-sector partnerships that lead to economic development in our region.
