Where We Live @ Real Art Ways
Folks, while not explicitly entrepreneurial in context, there is some fascinating discussion going on at the NPR-RAW collaboration on the creative class, business + arts, and what it would take to raise Hartford up into a world-class metro region.
I missed the first session they had, but heard from friends that it was quite impressive. For those available, I thought it might be a good, initial meet-and-greet for the group in a casual, informal venue before we kick off the first Startup event coming in December. I will email out my contact info the day before for all those who RSVP yes.
Hope to see you there!

5:30 PM: RECEPTION WITH HOST JOHN DANKOSKY AND THE WHERE WE LIVE CREW
6 PM: RECORDING
[Help us shape the conversation at the WWL @ RAW Blog]
This is the first of a series of conversations inspired by Where We Live @ Real Art Ways' live broadcast on Hartford's past, present, and future.
Last month, Where We Live and Real Art Ways asked for your thoughts, ideas, questions, and stories on Hartford's past, present, and future. We heard what you had to say – and now we’re continuing that conversation with a series of interactive live recordings. In the coming months, we’ll ask for your thoughts about topics like growing up in Hartford and the city’s development.
But first, we’re talking about locating creativity. It’s not just musicians and artists. It’s scientists and business people too. How can Hartford, the insurance capitol of the world
support a creative class? What (and who) is already
here – and how can we connect them? How does the greater Hartford region contribute to Hartford’s creative landscape? What are the elements of a dynamic city – and where should Hartford focus its energy? What are the
city’s barriers to a bustling creative economy?
We want you to help us shape this conversation! Are you part of Hartford’s creative class? Information on how to participate is coming soon. In the meantime, check out photos from the first Hartford show, and listen to the episode.
