ArtServe Michigan at League Convention
At the League’s Annual Convention, October 3-5 on Mackinac Island, the president and CEO of ArtServe Michigan, Jennifer Goulet, is scheduled to present on the economic impact of the arts.
Did you know that in 2009, the arts contributed $51 to the Michigan economy for every dollar invested by the state? Arts and culture attract tourism and entice diverse businesses and talent to set up shop within our borders, bringing the kind of creative energy needed to help build a sustainable future. Goulet will show how art and innovative design have the power to transform lives and create vibrant communities.
