Abstract/ Summary

This report focuses on two factors around Maine's creative economy: the rising importance of creative workers in creating new jobs and companies and in helping mature industries retool for the future; and the recognition of arts and cultural assets as more than contributors to quality of life in a particular place, but as important economic drivers for the region.
