Creative Economy Week

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. Creative Economy Week will share and explore creative endeavors, successes, and processes with the community. We welcome you to join or listen to the conversation, and participate in the programs and events that make Eau Claire a creative economy mecca.
