The Creative Economy: Harnessing Ideas and Innovation for Impact

Explore how Yale faculty and alumni are working to leverage the full scope of creative and technological activity to drive innovation, strengthen communities, and develop the next generation of leaders.

About the Program

The concept of the creative economy is rooted in the interplay between human creativity, knowledge, and technology. Today, the creative industries—including engineering, design, music, architecture, visual art, and digital media—are among the most dynamic sectors in the global economy. When creators and innovators are empowered to build and scale enterprises around their creative and technical intellectual property, what results are ecosystems that maximize societal impact and economic justice.
