Creative Economy Week, May 12-19, 2018, celebrates the blossoming creative economy movement in Wisconsin. In Eau Claire, we are fortunate to have a vibrant local creative economy. We all contribute to it, whether as producers or consumers. If you've ever been curious about your role in the creative economy, on either side of its success, this week is for you.
