Defining & Supporting the Creative Industries Cluster in Oregon
After many months and hundreds of volunteer hours reaching out and listening to the community, OCI recently published a draft document for public comment that defines the Creative Industries economic cluster in Oregon and proposes several objectives and initiatives for sustaining and growing Oregon’s creative economy.
The document, based on input from the for-profit, non-profit, public and education sectors of the creative economy ecosystem, has already been downloaded over 170 200 250 times since it was released and we have been receiving valuable feedback.
The document uses the same general structure as the Oregon Business Plan‘s “Policy Playbook: Initiative and Cluster Guide” so that when it reaches final draft it can easily plug into the next version of the Playbook in time for the 8th annual Leadership Summit in December 2009. This is just one example of the value that OCI can provide as the cluster’s trade association.
We encourage you to download and review the draft document and provide your feedback. To download, visit http://www.box.net/shared/of9mtjl7it
