I just learned this past Friday that I have been selected to be one of thirty community catalysts that will be working on the Creative Region Initiative for the next year. Of course, I will be writing about my "creative class adventures" here on MostMetro.com, and we will be using the new DMM Forum to help communicate ideas from both within the group as well as everybody else that would like to share ideas for improving our economy and making our city and region a more vibrant place.
I encourage ALL of you to join our forum and share your ideas. Don’t just be a spectator – get involved. Because that is the whole point of this project – to get as many people as possible involved in deciding what Dayton’s future will be. The thirty catalysts are only the beginning – this effort will need the help of many more people. If you’ve ever heard of crowdsourcing – this is it. Stay tuned, because you’ll read about the different projects that come out of this initiative HERE FIRST.
And if you are late getting here and have no idea what this is about, click here.
UPDATE (2/18/2008): I was just informed that not everybody that was selected has been notified yet, so if you applied and haven’t heard back, they may still be working on contacting you. And if you aren’t ultimately selected to be a catalyst, you can STILL GET INVOLVED.
