THE CREATIVE COAST. REIMAGINING THE GRAND TRAVERSE REGION’S CREATIVE AND CULTURAL ECONOMY.
Creative Coast is an initiative by Traverse Connect to enhance the Grand Traverse Region’s creative economy.
Our region possesses a well-developed creative industry and arts sector, while Traverse City is ranked tenth in the list of Top 10 Most Arts-Vibrant Medium Communities in the 2020 Arts Vibrancy Index report by the National Center for Arts Research. Traverse Connect wants to build on this advantage by leading the charge to enhance the creative economy in the Grand Traverse Region – attracting creative and innovative business, highlighting existing creative and entrepreneurial culture, and attracting and retaining creative and cultural talent.
