creative:impact- The Importance Of Washtenaw County Elections For Future Of The Creative Industries

Nov 7, 2017

The creative industries are tied to many facets of our personal lives and in our communities.  The health and well-being of this economic sector reaches beyond what many consider, "the arts."  As today is Election Day, this week's "creative:impact" focuses on the importance of elections and a cooperative spirit. 


Creative industries in Washtenaw County add hundreds of millions of dollars to the local economy.  Through the feature series, creative:impact, 89.1 WEMU's David Fair and co-host Deb Polich, the President and CEO of The Arts Alliance, will explore the myriad of contributors that make up the creative sector in Washtenaw County.  creative:impact will air at 7:50am and 9:50am each Tuesday as part of Morning Edition.
