About the Event

Boise’s creative economy - businesses and non-profits that produce creative goods or services such as films, concerts, advertising, cuisine, architecture, visual art, and performances – is crucial to the dynamic character and economic growth of Idaho’s capital city.

Bouncing back from closures and layoffs of the pandemic, Boise’s creative businesses and non-profits face new issues such as rising rents and attraction and retention of talent. How do we invest in the city's authentic character while innovating and challenging creative norms in an ever-changing place?

On this panel, creative industry leaders discuss the evolution of Southern Idaho’s creative business and urban environments and the shifting audiences and clients they serve.
