CultureBlocks Press Conference
Check out the press conference for the release of CultureBlocks. Mayor Michael Nutter definitely understands the need to give people access to such a rich database.
“CultureBlocks symbolizes the extraordinary role the creative community has played in our City’s economic recovery and neighborhood development,” said Mayor Nutter. “This web-based tool is the first of its kind in the Nation, and it is a testament to the creative sector in our city that Philadelphia is the first to undertake a project like this. Not only is this a tool that is free to the public, but various city agencies and non-profit organizations will use CultureBlocks in planning, business attraction efforts, investment decision-making, and in providing technical assistance to the arts community — all to improve the livability and creativity of our city.”
