TEDxWDC is an extension of the Center for the Creative Economy, which is a new non-profit cultural start up dedicated to promoting communication between the creative economic clusters in the city of Washington, D.C. The Center seeks to assist the 6 economic clusters, to form a stronger voice for creative thinkers and doers and establish strong bonds between creative, entrepreneurial and artistic individuals and groups in the city The Center seeks to build on the District’s Creative Action Agenda (DCAA) which seeks to grow the more than 75,000 direct jobs in the District’s creative sector, which generate more than $5 billion in income each year. These jobs amount to more than 10 percent of the city’s employment base and serve as a base point in working toward the District’s creative economy goals.
