Rise of the Creative Class: The other Florida

31 Jul

The Landmark Society and Preservation Coalition will be hosting an upcoming community dialogue based on Richard Florida’s book, “Rise of the Creative Class”? The conversation seeks to apply the research and boservations from this book (about the intersection of thriving communities and the active presence of
creative people) to our own community. Perhaps the conversation will lead to an eventual community strategy to attract and retain creative class employees as a catalyst for economic growth.

There will be three conversations scheduled between noon and 1:00 at the Buffalo Architecture Center, Market Arcade, 617 Main Street, Buffalo.
