Mayor Bowser to Launch Effort Showcasing District’s Creative Economy

Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the inaugural “202Creates,” a citywide effort launching in September to showcase the District’s diverse and vibrant creative economy. Through an array of events, 202Creates will promote the artists, makers, and entrepreneurs who contribute to the District’s thriving creative industries.

“We are showcasing that the nation’s capital is also the capital of creativity,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “Every corner of our city hosts a diversity of creative industries that employ District residents and improve our quality of life. These are the people that day in and day out contribute to the heartbeat of our creative economy and help to define who we are as a city. With 202Creates, we are celebrating the creative contributions of our residents.”
