About this Webinar

Introduced by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) at Art Advocacy Day on March 8th 2016, the Comprehensive Resources for Entrepreneurs in the Arts to Transform the Economy (CREATE) Act aims to more thoroughly serve the people, places, and programs that make our nation's creative economy prosper in all its cultural, social, and commercial forms. Through minor adjustments to existing federal programs, the legislation takes steps to better invest in our country's workforce and creative industries, while empowering the entrepreneurial spirit of artists and encouraging their role as contributors to the small business community. Join this webinar to learn more about this bill, its implications and next steps in the legislative process.

Attendees will learn more about the provisions in the CREATE Act and how the bill seeks to empower artists and those in the creative economy across the country. Attendees will also learn how they can take action from home to encourage legislative movement on the bill.
