Creative Hastings is a venue for Hastings County businesses and professionals to network and share creative rural economy stories and experiences.
Our events are held quarterly, free to attend and open to everyone! Expand networking opportunities and meet local business people and other community services.
What is the creative economy? The creative economy is driven by knowledge, innovation and people who use analytical, creative thinking and social skills. It is as much about lawyers as it is artists, managers as it is designers, entertainers as it is brokers. The creative economy employs creative workers across all industries and sectors including manufacturing and agriculture.
According to recent statistics, at least 1/3 of businesses in Hastings County fall within the creative economy. Jobs within the creative economy are set to grow by 40% over the next decade. Creative workers on average make $20,000 more in salary, and they contribute to most of the spending within our local economy.
