Event Name:Co-Operatives First Webinar: Arts, Culture and Economic Development

Hosted by Heather Hallgrimson, Business Development Lead for Co-operatives First

Art and economic development may not seem like the most natural of strategic partners. But a growing number of rural communities are turning to arts and culture as a way to attract visitors, new families, and businesses along with the economic benefits they bring with them. In this webinar, we’ll quiz three experienced economic development professionals that have leveraged arts and culture in their communities, and learn how their communities benefitted from positioning arts and culture as a hometown advantage.
