More than 45 different breakout sessions were held during Creative Orange’s convening and topics included:

  • Train stations as catalysts for economic development and centers of activities in order to draw people into Orange and making I-280 less divisive to the unity of the city
  • Collaboration between Orange and higher education in order to nurture a creative economy
  • Developing stronger relationships between Orange’s nonprofits and businesses & community leaders
  • Exposing our youth to successful leaders to create a better community, and becoming the “village” that raises a child
  • Changing the perceptions of Orange and consciously branding Orange as a center of culture and innovation
