Portland is one of the cities often mentioned when people speak about the “Creative Class” and the “Creative Economy”. Many people work in creative jobs here and others move here for these types of careers and to live near other creative professionals.
On Wednesday, you can see four of the leaders in Portland’s creative community and learn how you can work and participate in these fields.
Vizwerks is taking part in a panel discussion called “Working in the Creative Economy” featuring Susan Hoffman (Executive Creative Director at Wieden+Kennedy), Steve Potestio (Managing Director at 52 Limited), Randy Higgins (Creative Director at Vizwerks) and Jolie Giese (General Manager at Nau).
