Deadline: May 20, 2016

Sponsor: Broward County Cultural Division

Location: Fine Arts Theatre Bldg. 6 Broward college A. Hugh Adams Central Campus 3501 Davie Road, Davie, FL 33314

The Symposium is a collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) Cultural, Solidarity and Creativity Affairs Division and the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies at American University, surrounding the IDB report: ‘The Orange Economy.’

The meeting will be a unique convening of cultural economists from the hemisphere, academics, and global experts in the creative economy and creative cities, to examine the contribution of creativity as a key element of economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean, and the impact to the arts economy of South Florida

The contribution of creativity is an important key element of social and economic development in the Caribbean, Latin America, and South Florida. Some $640 billion was the value of the world’s exports of creative goods and services in 2011, of which $87 billion or 14 percent originated in the Americas, according to data compiled by Oxford Economics.

In a bid to encourage debate in Latin America and the Caribbean on the contribution of creativity as a key element of economic and social development, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) published in 2013 the book: “The Orange Economy: An Infinite Opportunity” (in Spanish and English) a report on the creative and cultural economy of this region written by IDB officials Felipe Buitrago and Iván Duque Márquez.

National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Jane Chu announced earlier this year that Broward Cultural Division is one of 21 local arts agencies nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. The Broward Cultural Division was recommended for a $15,000 award to support the convening of A Creative and Cultural Industries Symposium: The Future of the Latin American, Caribbean, & South Florida Economies.

The Broward Cultural Division will partner with the University of Florida and Broward College to present the Symposium on May 20, 2016 during the University of Florida’s Brazilian Music Institute at Broward College’s Central Campus.
