Artists need people to help get the word out on their work, which can be a lot of work by itself. Fortunately, there are conferences that help making such public relations work more effective. WEMU's David Fair and Arts Alliance CEO Deb Polich talks to Arts Alliance communications director Lauren James about such events, including the first-ever "Creative Washtenaw Communications Conversation," in this week's "creative:impact."
Creative industries in Washtenaw County add hundreds of millions of dollars to the local economy. In the weeks and months to come, 89.1 WEMU's David Fair and co-host Deb Polich, the President and CEO of The Arts Alliance, explore the myriad of contributors that make up the creative sector in Washtenaw County.
