Meridian, Miss. A forum for creating economic strategies is set for this coming Thursday in the Queen City.
The MSU Riley Center is playing host to that forum. It will run from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The event will include two key note speakers, one from the Mississippi Arts Commission and the other from Mississippi Tourism. The forum will also have three panels: one on performing arts, another on business organization, and a third on arts and education.
"This forum is going to take it to the next level," Richelle Putnam says. "And really get to how you can create this creative economy and what you need to do in order to do that. Whether you're a business, an artist, or a community using the arts to bring in tourism."
The forum is free and open to the public. Registration is requested. You can contact Meridian Main Street for more information.
