Expanding on the “future of work” theme explored during CNJG’s Spring Conference, this session will dive into the creative economy – what it is, how it can drive inclusive economic development, and the role of philanthropy in supporting creative industries. The arts sector is critical to prepare our future workforce with skills employers need, create and sustain quality jobs for all, and build thriving communities. Speakers will discuss how investing in the creative economy can spur innovation and sustainable development for a more resilient New Jersey.
