The Monieson Centre at Queens University in Kingston Ontario is researching the rural creative economy and how it coincides with regional revitalization. Creative economic activities include “professional contributions such as art, advertising, design, film, publishing, education, R&D, software and media”.
“This innovative and interactive forum will provide academics, business community representatives and economic developers with opportunities to debate ideas, examine theory, present research findings and exchange experiences in order to emerge with a refined understanding of the rural creative economy.”
This conference is sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada , Ontario East Economic Development and the Prince Edward/Lennox & Addington CFDC.
