    Incorporating Creative Culture in Developments
    Austin’s Creative Culture has largely driven this City's economic growth, ongoing success and world-wide renown.  However, as Austin grows, how does our Creative Culture not only survive, but also integrate with new and existing developments?  Are we fully realizing the short + long-term value that Creative Culture brings to Austin? And how it can both innovate and drive growth to our projects?  Learn about developments that have successfully incorporated Creative Culture for added benefit to the development and better understand the needs of the Creative Culture community and the City of Austin current and potential related initiatives.
