Rise of Anacostia's Creative Class

TEDX is calling on Anacostia's best and brightest to help launch a TEDxWDC event in Anacostia. TED's tagline, "ideas worth spreading", asks that Southeast residents brainstorm on new ideas that can drive the next creative economy.


First of all what exactly is a creative economy? What kind of creative business ideas would thrive East of the River? Maybe a few healthy fast food establishments, urban agribusinesses, holistic movement studios, or interactive youth homework cafes? Whatever it is, Anacostia is ripe for new ideas and services that can draw in creative dollars.



For more information come to the next meeting:
TEDXWDC
Washington DC Economic Partnership
1495 F Street NW
2pm
Friday, July 29, 2011
RSVP to tedxwdc@gmail.com

I love those ideas.

I'm at supervisor at a non-profit in Anacostia. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance in carrying out your ideas!

Hey Alexis! Yes you can be of lots of assistance! Email anacostiayogi@gmail.com. This upcoming event will be very interesting. Anacostia has lots of homegrown creative energy. Most people, especially youth, just need a solid foundation and format from where they can launch their ideas.
