This RTS-led project delivered to the Cultural Alliance of Greater Birmingham a strategic plan to mobilize the city’s rich arts and culture resources to create jobs and income growth and strengthen the economy. RTS, along with its Alliance for Creative Advantage Partners, Mt. Auburn Associates and Michael Kane Consulting, crafted a plan and implementation scheme that linked and leveraged the city’s creative industries and occupations, cultural assets, and talented people to drive local innovation across a wider and diverse set of creative sectors including design, culinary arts, performing arts, film and media, culture and heritage, and visual arts and crafts.
