CreateHere Launches to Research Creative Economic and Cultural Growth in Chattanooga Friday, June 29, 2007
The first week of July 2007 will bring the launch of a new research and planning project in Chattanooga, focused on the engagement of creative, innovative and entrepreneurial Chattanoogans in the life of the city. Called CreateHere, the project will begin with three months of in-depth discovery, research and planning facilitated by Helen Johnson and Josh McManus.
“Chattanooga is fertile ground for young creative companies to become economic drivers and community leaders,” said Johnson. “An economic development study conducted in Chattanooga last summer reported that for our city to thrive, we need to encourage creative communities. We have already seen the beginnings of a wonderful, dynamic, diverse movement, but there has not been any central plan for pulling young professionals together and helping them plug into Chattanooga for everyone’s benefit.”
