Nov 21, 2015

  The creative industry sector in New Mexico is a huge part of New Mexico's economy, employing even more people than construction and manufacturing combined. That's according to a 2014 study by the Bureau of Business and Economic Research.

In this segment, Megan Kamerick talks with Roxanne Blair, director of programs for Creative Startups, and Susan McAllister, executive director of The Art of Revolution, a nonprofit using art and education to inspire social change that is in the 2015 class at Creative Startups.  

Creative Startups is a business accelerator that focuses on entrepreneurs in the creative economy, including artists, art collectives, designers, app developers and more.
