DOWNTOWNNOLANew Orleans…creative district…cultural economy…

A few years ago, the linkage of those terms meant little.  Now, they, in many ways, personify the city’s personality and lifeblood that connects the heritage of New Orleans’s music, arts, literature, to the future and new economy.

 

 

In my recent Facebook/Twitter Live interview with the President and CEO of the Downtown Development District Kurt Weigle, the issue of the creative district and cultural economy emerged.

The DDD in partnering with various organizations are taking the concepts to the next level.

For example, Weigle’s organization has partnered with the Idea Village’s Entrepreneurship Week which is fast-approaching.  Various businesses reflecting the creative industry will be vying in a “pitch” for substantial award and recognition.
