The Creative Industries across the United States has grown 38% over the last eight years in an economic downturn. It is the only industry growing in America. I am part of that growing movement bring the collaboration process of Community, Arts, Sciences (and Math, technologies), and Humanities.

The Eschweiler Buildings on the Milwaukee CO. grounds now owned by the UWM Foundation were granted Historic Preservation while the Pump House/ Power House was not. The pump house has a long history of creating energy for the Eschweiler Buildings and I propose to re-energize them with new energy utilizing the Creative Industries inspiration for an economic impact.

It is a well known Universal fact that the Arts, via Music, Literature, performance, Science and Math helps one understand how we are connected to each other and the world. Across America groups are collaborating with Communities, Industries and Business to create sustainable, eco friendly places to live, work and play. Look to America for the Arts attached on statistics for our county. Why not here in Wauwatosa?
