You’re invited to a GrowSmart Maine smart growth forum on Arts & Culture as economic motivators in Maine!
Friday, July 24th, 1:00-3:00PM Waterfall Arts
256 High Street
What do you imagine when you think of a healthy downtown? It’s likely full of people walking, biking, and genuinely enjoying the space they are in. We think of people collaborating to become a destination for people to visit and experience. Cities and towns are beginning to embrace arts and culture as a means of distinguishing their downtowns as creative economies. Through passion, innovation, and creativity, communities are changing and reinventing themselves through arts and culture, and generating significant economic activity by doing so. We invite you to join us for our second Smart Growth Forum of the 2015 Season in Belfast, Maine – a city that has pioneered this movement in Maine, and is a success-story for arts and economic prosperity.
Be sure to stick around town afterwards– our Forum will be followed by the Belfast Fourth Friday Art Walk! Refreshments provided by Rollies – a Belfast tradition since 1972!
When: Friday, July 24th, 1:00-3:00 PM
Cost: $25 for members, $50 for non-members. Not a member? Join today.
