Alberta Party introduces Creative Industries Policy
Posted on March 30, 2012 by Richard Einarson
The Alberta Party recognizes the economic and social value of the Creative Industry and cultural communities to our province. We believe that the arts can play a major role in diversifying our economy. Social investments made in arts and culture result in spinoff economic activities.
The Alberta Party sees the Creative Industries as one of the most immediate ways to diversify the economy. In order to make the arts more viable and self-sufficient, there needs to be a proper investment strategy – just as the oil sands saw initial public investment that blossomed into a massive private industry.
By investing now in order to establish a strong foundation, Albertans will enjoy the benefits down the road.
