About this blog
This is my blog on the arts scene of Carrboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding Triangle communities. I'll focus on visual arts and the 2ndFriday Artwalk and other visual art events but that doesn't mean I won't chat about music, literary events, film or anything else in the local creative world. Please email with ideas, links, comments or brickbats. [I have comment moderation on so if you don't see your comment right away that means that I haven't had a chance to approve it yet. Sorry, but the spammers.....]

The creative economy and economic development
I was contacted recently about the creative economy and how arts and creativity impact community economic success. It was partly about a Webinar a colleague and I had conducted on how to measure the creative economy. The fellow, an economic development professional named Dean Barber, ultimately posted an interesting blog post on the topic entitled "How the Governor Got His Groove On." Read it here.
