About the Website
This website was created by Ryan Smolar, creative consultant and BID Manager for Downtown Inc. He has worked on this project in partnership with Madeleine Spencer from Santa Ana Business Council and Robyn MacNair from SanArts with Santa Ana Unified School District.
This site emerged as a solution to "attack the gap" between workforce readiness and employer needs in the creative sector.
