WE HEARD ... Visibility and Economic Vitality: The arts should be marketed more heavily as a driver for the region’s tourism. Performance venues and art galleries are fairly well known locally but not fully promoted as part of the region’s draw. Local talent and the creative industry suffer economically from this lack of visibility. There should be more value placed on the arts and creative industry’s contribution to the local economy by regional leadership, and this could be more of a focus for advocacy and economic development work in the future.
