• Topic Summary

    The Covid pandemic has brought into sharp focus the interconnectedness of technology and the daily machinations of our economy. Now more than ever we are doing business on-line and in a virtual world. But do our communities have the infrastructure to continue to grow in these areas? What can we glean from trends in consumer spending? How has the world of property development (including design & construction) been impacted? And how can the arts contribute to navigating this world?

     

    At a hyper-local level, small businesses cannot predict current consumer trends, struggling business owners don’t know how to reposition themselves, and thriving businesses are unnerved, not able to predict risks nor plan for them.

     

    Where is our economy at right now and where will we be in the next 5,10 or 20 years?

     

    This panel discussion will take a deep dive into understanding current trends in areas of key economic indicators - purchasing power, construction & development and broadband infrastructure. A facilitator will delve into how these areas are interconnected and weave through the insight and potency of an arts perspective on our new reality.
