Ben Forman on the economic and social benefits of communities abundant with arts and culture


In Episode 60 of the podcast “Creative Minds Out Loud,” MassINC research director Ben Forman discusses the economic and social benefits of communities which are abundant with arts and culture. A project of the Mass Cultural Council, the podcast features conversations with cultural leaders and those interested in the promotion of the arts in Massachusetts.

By noting the economic returns that Cultural Districts can bring to cities, Ben advocates for further municipal investment in the arts. To learn more about Creative Minds Out Loud and the Mass Cultural Council, click here.
