Creative Economy
The Creative Economy Is where our shared humanity manifests itself in the physical and digital world – “hidden in plain sight”.

What is the Creative Economy?

The Creative Economy is the conglomerate of cultural and business impact innovated utilizing creativity. The Creative Economy embraces the arts, film, fashion, architecture, cuisine, eco/cultural impact, and all manifestations of creativity. 

The Creative Economy is generally the first to market with the most experimental approaches and use of technology. Because of this innovation, the Creative Economy (also called the Orange Economy) is the first to use and thrive on the blockchain. It is identified as one of the world’s most resilient and flexible economies.
