Next month, Create Birmingham will introduce The Business of Creating, a new webinar series designed to provide arts & culture organizations with insights, resources, and tools to grow effectively and sustainably.
"We, the arts, are having an enormous economic impact on the success and vibrancy of this city... We are literally creating jobs – and in a field where it's so hard to find an artistic home."
We want to be clear. Create Birmingham is an anti-racism organization. We strive, entrepreneur by entrepreneur, to build an inclusive and just economy in which Black business ownership is equitably resourced and purposefully nurtured. We intentionally spotlight and celebrate Black thought, contribution, and achievement in the arts and all creative work, and we will continue to seek out ways to amplify Black voices. We believe that all humans are born with a spirit of creativity…
Creative work, at its core, is not about an ultimate finished product. It’s about authentic engagement with audiences, customers or clients. It’s about an expression that cannot be contained. And it’s about human connection and shared experience.
