"In our troubled economic climate, cuts in arts education cannot be overestimated while the economic impact of our creative economy is underestimated," says Jack Lew, a digital media expert and one of the conference's keynote speakers. Lew is the new program director for the University of Central Florida's Center for Emerging Media and the former global art talent resources manager for Electronic Arts, the world's leading interactive entertainment software company.
"More than ever, we need to nourish our creative resources and it begins with arts education in our public schools," says Lew, who was also the former senior manager of Artist and Professional Development for Disney Feature Animation Florida.
"The internet and emerging new media, including video games, have created a wide gap between today's youth and educators," Lew says.
