Building a Cultural Tourist Destination Presentation, Nov. 5, 12 -1pm
Please join us on Thursday, Nov 5th from 12:00 to 1:00 pm at the Rogue Studio for the presentation “Lessons from Appalachia: Leveraging the Arts & Crafts as a Major Economic Development Strategy for Southern Oregon” by Jerry Works.
Cammy Davis, local artist and Edgy in October organizer says, “I saw a presentation by Jerry Works about how Appalachia converted poverty to a multi-million dollar economy through the arts.  There were so many similarities between that region and the Rogue Valley, I wanted to bring it to the Medford business and arts community as well.  I think this short presentation will inspire you and give you insight on how to help build cultural tourism in our area.”
