SBCC believes the experts who can help revitalize the local economy are individuals that live within the community. It does not believe in outsourcing this work because the folks within a community have a better understanding of its culture.
With Local Economies, SBCC is helping drive economic growth at the local level by supporting small businesses and innovative individuals within the community. It is made up of the monthly community pop up that happens the first Saturday of every month. This also includes programs such as bartering as a professional exchange of skills and services delivered via the SBCC website, as well as the Community Beautification/Creative Natives Collective, which leverages local talent to help businesses redesign their space.
The Streetcraft pop up is more than just an event its a community, a safe space, and a launching pad for brave and resilient individuals who are challenging the narrative of the creative economy.
