Let’s Talk New Mexico 10/26 8a: In New Mexico and across the West, economies are changing. From agriculture to tech startups, health care and business on tribal lands, communities in New Mexico are working to adapt. 

This week on Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’re looking at communities who are coming up with solutions to the economic changes our state is facing as part of our collaboration with the Solutions Journalism Network's State of Change project.

New Mexico's creative sector employs thousands of people and generates tens of millions of dollars for state and local governments. We'll talk to people who are working to leverage this dynamic sector to boost our economy and we'd like to hear from you! 

Creative Startups

  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.
