Creative industries contribute to a city’s quality of life and economic bottom line. Art is a measure of a community’s vitality and its financial success. Houston’s creative economy hit $26 billion in 2014, but what does that really mean? The 2016 Arts Summit explores the role of the individual, for- and non-profit organizations, and the entrepreneur in the twenty-first century creative economy. How can the artistic sectors combine forces to lead communities into a more creative and sustainable future?

Opening speaker: Christine Harris, CEO Christine Harris Connections & Co-founder of the National Creativity Network's Creative Economy Coalition
