CreativeGround is a directory of the enterprises and professional workers of the creative economy - the organizations and individuals who work within the creative sector. However, creative economy initiatives (sometimes called creative place-making), which are projects that leverage local creative assets and cross-sector partnerships for community revitalization and growth, are becoming more and more popular around the New England region. These initiatives are typically not housed within a single cultural organization due to their cross-sector nature, and are often led by local government, planning, or economic development offices. These creative economy projects should be added to Community Initiatives on nefa.org, as a complement to CreativeGround, and we encourage you to do so through the easy form you will find there!
