At its heart, the Upstate Alliance for the Creative Economy (ACE) is about strengthening the Capital Region’s creative economy to drive business development, increasing jobs, and driving tourism.

ACE, a collaborative, cross-sector group has come together to strengthen support for creative freelancers, creative organizations, and individuals involved in creative work.

The creative economy is defined as the enterprises and people involved in the origination, production, and distribution of goods and services in which artistic and cultural content gives the product or service value in the marketplace.

LISTEN to former University at Albany President Karen Hitchcock describe the value of the Creative Economy and why it’s an important strategy to pursue.
