Cultural Economic Development
Arts and culture are essential components of a thriving, knowledge-based economy. A healthy creative sector attracts and retains residents and businesses, and produces economic benefits including jobs, a stronger tax base, downtown and neighborhood revitalization, and tourism.
21c3 provides Technical Services and Solutions to communities creating cultural economic development planning strategies and considering opportunities such as partnerships across sectors of society, mixed-use development that includes spaces where artists can live and work, and the promotion of culture-based businesses.
