New Engines of Growth - Five Roles for Arts, Culture, and Design

Published by Eric Kirkendall
This report focuses on the role that arts, culture, and design can play in assisting states as they
seek to create jobs and boost their economies in the short run and transition to an innovationbased economy in the long run.

In particular, arts, culture, and design can assist states with economic growth because they can:
1. Provide a fast-growth, dynamic industry cluster;
2. Help mature industries become more competitive;
3. Provide the critical ingredients for innovative places;
4. Catalyze community revitalization; and
5. Deliver a better-prepared workforce.
