Welcome to the Creative Economy
The Creative Corps is a multi-faceted program designed to make it easy for businesses and professionals within the creative industries to open their businesses and the creative economy to young people from disadvantaged neighborhoods.
Open and Inclusive
Creative industry dialogues give professionals within the creative industries and community stakeholders an opportunity to explore issues of race and develop a unified commitment to opening the creative industries to greater diversity and generate ideas for AIGA/Greater Together Programming.
An Ongoing Opportunity
Every program AIGA/Greater Together engages in presents an opportunity to introduce the community to the power of design and the need to engage more fully in issues of racial equality.
This gives designers an easy and gratifying way to plug in and share their passion. The workshops are designed to inspire students and introduce them to the power of design.
Issues-based Student Workshops bring together students of color, a team of professional designers and a professional facilitator—using design as a solution to real-world problems.
A Dynamic Approach
Spectrum is a three fold series consisting of Interaction, Lecture and Workshops. This series is designed to be equally exciting for young designers, those interested in entering the industry, social innovators and the business community. It features prominent and nationally recognized designers of color.
These free-wheeling sessions give the design community a chance to engage students, designers, business leaders and social innovators in our mission to diversify Milwaukee’s Creative Class.
Support & Info
Hi, Thank you for you interest in being Greater Together.
We believe, to thrive as a city, it is essential for Milwaukee's racially segregated creative industries to become more inclusive and reflective of our city as a whole. That begins by acknowledging the issues, and then making a commitment as individuals, professionals and businesses to be part of the soultion. We believe that making our creative economy more open and welcoming will be good for our businesses and have a significant impact by increasing opportunities for the disadvantaged as well.
