Portland Made says
Portland State University Associate Professor of Urban Studies, Charles Heying, will present our second year of survey results that shows the economic impact of the maker movement in Portland.

Charles Heying is an Associate Professor of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. His research interests include the interrelationship of private, nonprofit, and public sectors in market economies; institutional network analysis; and elites, power, and social transformation. Heying’s interests led him to develop a new project on Portland’s artisan economy, depicting the “creative class” and cultural economy of a rising city.

In 2011, Heying and his students started the Artisan Economy Initiative and their blog can be viewed here.
