Artists: Powering the Creative Economy?

Event: Artists: Powering the Creative Economy?

Organizer: Canadian Conference of the Arts

Type: Conference

Place: Ottawa

Dates: 1st-3 November 2010

Presentation: As Canada and other countries move towards an increasingly flexible, digitally-based, mobile and creative economy, artists and producers of content are both more important players while also increasingly vulnerable. The Canadian Conference of the Arts’ 2010 National Policy Conference will explore the policies needed to ensure that Canada will be a leading player in this new economy. Since the creative economy is local, regional, national and global, the scope for discussion is vast.
