Creative communities are the wellsprings of innovation-driven economies, but when cities thrive and costs soar, artists and musicians can find themselves struggling to survive. Increasingly, arts organizations are offering support to artists in a competitive marketplace, while private-sector entrepreneurs are looking to connect to creative innovators. SPUR welcomes Nicholas Jayanty of Reversal Films, who is developing an incubator to assist Austin musicians, Katrina Rodabaugh, of San Francisco’s Intersection for the Arts incubator, and Alexa Arena of Forest City, creator of the new 5M incubator.

Co-sponsored by the Northern Section of the APA California Chapter. AICP CM credits available.
