Denver Office of Cultural Affairs with Create Denver

The Denver Office of Cultural Affairs (DOCA) is an organization that works to promote Art and Creativity in Denver. Within DOCA, Create Denver: Art & Economic Development is a group that works to use Creativity and Art as a catalyst for Economic growth in the city. The popular Creative Class book and theory have made this a popular concept and Hickenlooper is wise to embrace this popular concept. There is some doubt about whether there is really a correlation between the "creative class" and economic growth over the long term, but in the short term it's a very popular concept that will bring Denver attention and hopefully more jobs and more creative folks - I'll take either or both of those!
