I had a great time today at the Creative Corridor Launch. I was really impressed by the number of people there (approx 300), and the event itself. I’m really for the idea of presenting this region in a better light. Like many Iowans, I’ve heard plenty of corn jokes, etc. when traveling and living elsewhere. There are too many amazing people living here for that to be the only impression Iowa leaves. Let’s fix that!

My favorite quote from the event: “not only do we create here, we are also creating here“.

The Creative Corridor is what we make of it, after all, so let’s make the most of it.

We Create Here - Iowa's Creative Corridor

Below is a video they presented at the event, which I think turned out very well. Here’s hoping it helps de-mystify Iowa to those living outside the Midwest!
