Lowell is increasingly becoming a destination for creative entrepreneurs and artists to locate their businesses. Our aim is to support and highlight Lowell businesses that fit the creative economy definition put forth by the Lowell Plan and City of Lowell. We define the Creative Economy as industries that have their origin in individual creativity, skill and talent, and which have a potential for wealth and job creation through the generation of ideas, products and/or services.
Local musicians, filmmakers, fiber artists, writers and book publishers, multicultural artists are key to Lowell’s continued innovation and cultural economy. Step into one of the city’s African boutiques, or stop by Battambang Market for a taste from Asia. In this city of World Culture, you can be a globetrotter in your backyard!
