I.D.E.A.S. 40203 Network Effect
We are hosting a series of OPEN FORUMS where Metro Government candidates and officials are invited to share their vision for developing creative entrepreneurship in Louisville.
The OPEN format allows 3-5 minutes for interested candidates to "pitch" their ideas for new ways that art and entrepreneurship can be combined to CREATE The Way Forward!
Both FORUMS are open to the press and public. Everyone attending will be given social media hashtags and encouraged to provide crowd-sourced coverage and commentary of the candidate's comments in real time.
