14th & V | Langston Room | March 2, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Busboys and Poets and the Humanities Council of Washington DC presents Humanitini: The Creative Economy and the DC Cultural Plan.  John Howkins coined the term “creative economy” to identify the intersection of arts and humanities entrepreneurship, government policy, and private foundation support. The creative economy defines how a community sees itself. The DC Council’s recent foray into shaping the local creative economy – the DC Cultural Plan – may shape the District’s identity for years to come.
