Creativity and Voice in a Successful Economy

Thursday 23rd November 2017,

noon - 1:00 pm -  Penticton Public Library

The third speaker in the series deals with the role of creativity in the expression of voice. Sacchetti’s particular
concern is voice that brings about wider participation in socio-economic processes. She focuses on innovative
ways to influence the economic emancipation of regions and localities, and reflects on what people in a particular
context may do or want to do - in terms of their aspirations and actions - to impact the development of their
region. In addressing these issues, attention is drawn to lessons and implications for the BC wine industry.
Sacchetti is interested in the development of inclusive economies and localities, and building inclusive relations
amongst communities of interest at all societal levels.
