RuralTube : The Creative Rural Economy Conference - From Theory to Practice

Source: The Monieson Centre, Queen's School of Business.
The innovation and knowledge-based economy has become a major driver of economic growth in urban areas around the world resulting in the roles of cities and regions in a global economy being redefined and reshaped.

The transformation that has emerged is as significant and as challenging as the transformation that has been made from agriculture to industry; specifically the move away from jobs based on physical activity or repetitive tasks to ones that require analytical skills and judgement. Cities play an important role in the shifting economy. The studies, and their growing evidence, form the basis from which rural and northern Ontario communities would be able to work towards building stronger, more vibrant and dynamic creative economies independently and through collaborative efforts. This conference focused on how the theory of the creative economy can be experienced in practice in rural Ontario communities.
