North Carolina needs more of it.
Since May 2009, IEI has been actively involved in its Creativity program of work. Through focus groups, larger community conversations, and the 25th Annual Emerging Issues Forum, IEI has seen first hand North Carolina’s collective potential to be a creativity economy leader and a model for other states.
At the end of 2010, IEI convened its Business Committee on Creativity. Over two meetings, business leaders from across the state gathered together to discuss ways in which North Carolina can equip students with the skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century workforce.
