Creative Many Michigan is moving its headquarters from Wixom to TechTown, bringing with it seven jobs to New Center.
The arts-based-economic-development nonprofit, formerly known as ArtServe Michigan, was renting space in the Detroit Public Television
facility in Oakland County. It is now occupying about 1,400 square feet of space to be closer to the heart of the region’s arts scene and its major players, such as the Detroit Creative Corridor Center, which also calls New Center home.
"Clearly Detroit is a major hub for arts and creative industries," says Jennifer Goulet, president & CEO of Creative Many Michigan
The nonprofit has added one new person to its team of seven people over the last year. It is also looking to add another person. That team plans to spend a large part of 2015 updating the non-profit's Creative State Michigan report
, which details the economic impact of the arts and creative communities across the state.
"We are directly working with Detroit Creative Corridor Center for the second phase of our creative economy research," Goulet says.
