I really liked this event I saw through the University of the West Indies (UWI) website. The university is in Trinidad and Tobago and lately, I come more often across news from the Caribbean about the Creative Economy and its potential for local economic development.
The event is entitled “E³ 2014: 3 Cultural Industries, 3 Entrepreneurs, 3 Hours” and tool place on 31 October 2014 at the University Campus.
“You are invited to experience an interactive encounter with Cultural Industry Entrepreneurs; get up close and personal with young entrepreneurs who have positively impacted on their respective sectors and are actively developing our Cultural Industries. Meet them. Chat with them. Question them. Engage them.”
