Arts, Culture & the Creative Economy:
"The Arts are the embodiment of dreams.
A diverse, vibrant and accessible arts and cultural landscape is necessary for the City’s tourism initiatives and quality of life of its residents.
Economic development is enhanced by harnessing the synergy of the business community, artists and cultural institutions such at the Allentown Art Museum, Allentown JazzFest, Civic Theater and others. Arts and Cultural activities can draw crowds from within the City and beyond.
I will create Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy within the Mayor’s Office. The Director of this Office will report directly to the Mayor and will solicit the advice of Allentown's arts leaders and entrepreneurs. The mission of the Director of the Office will be to create and execute a well articulated arts and culture plan for Allentown.
Building the Creative Class in Allentown brings together several very important threads of stakeholders:the philanthropic sector; the arts and non-profit community; and the business community leaders.
The Creative Class encompasses also the technology sector: the coders, programmers, and dreamers that innovate new products and services. Technology and the Arts are inextricably intertwined in the present day, and will be more so in the future. You cannot have one without the other.
Allentown will lead on this issue and not be content to do things the way they have always been done." - Luiz Garcia, Allentown Republican Mayoral Candidate.
