USDA Official, Center for Rural Strategies, Discuss Ways Rural Areas can Attract and Retain Creative Young Americans
As “young creatives” living and practicing in rural Utah (and funded through USDA Rural Development), we wish we had been invited to this conference. Sounds like it was right up our alley especially with Matthew Fluharty and Richard Saxton in attendance and the brainstorming sessions!
Rural communities that find a way to attract and/or retain creative people and organizations are going to have an easier time charting a viable future in the global economy. In the years ahead, USDA will hopefully find ways to support the entrepreneurs that make up the rural creative class.
