February 27, 2018 ~ Arts & Economic Prosperity in Maine
Chewing on a lot of economic impact data? With Maine's first state-wide participation in Arts & Economic Prosperity 5, so are we! We've invited Randy Cohen, Vice President of Research and Policy for Americans for the Arts, to a special luncheon to help us all better digest these heaping helpings of data. Randy not only makes sense of data that is important to how we tell our stories. He makes data fun, too! Join us at Point Lookout in Northport for this special event at which you will also hear from NEFA's Dee Schneidman who will be on hand to distill the first-ever New England Creative Jobs Matter study for the region. Stay tuned for registration information.
