CreativeNEXT Tour Image 

CreativeNEXT events were held throughout the summer of 2012 to further the visionary growth of the creative economy across the state of Massachusetts. Through a roundtable discussions we gained valuable insights concerning the growth and sustainability of businesses within the Commonwealth:

  • What sets companies apart?
  • Where are the opportunities to grow?
  • What support is needed  to grow?
  • How can we help?
  • What's NEXT?

CALLING ALL CREATIVE ECONOMY BUSINESSES AND SUPPORTERS!

Join us for the CreativeNEXT event in your community or industry.
