The Creative Industries economic sector generates 30 million jobs globally and $704.2 billion in U.S. GDP alone. It is also one of the fastest growing economic sectors. What does this mean for New Orleans?  What is the role of creatives and other economic development business and civic leaders? 

These are questions the Creative Alliance of New Orleans (CANO), Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation (LCEF) and the Downtown Development District (DDD) are addressing with the special program, "Creative Industries Day" that opens on the first day of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week, Monday, March 20 at 11:00am., continuing through to 8:30pm, at the Contemporary Arts Center and at the Ogden Museum. A special invite-only event and reception will be held at the Ogden Museum, 6:30-8:30pm.
