LOOKING AHEAD: CREATIVE/CULTURAL SECTOR
An indelible creative impulse sustains RVA. Without question. Our City was actually named a top city for creatives by Thrillist in 2016. And a year later, MovieMaker recognized RVA among the 'Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker.' From the top of Church Hill to Shockoe Bottom; from Historic Jackson Ward to the city's thriving Museum district, Richmond continues to forge new paths for creatives across a variety of mediums.
Across the Atlantic, there are at least 15 World Heritage Sites, designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, across countries from where RVA draws its African heritage. After a rigorous application and review process by international experts, these sites are found to demonstrate "outstanding universal value" and one-of-a-kind contributions to world culture. Check some of them out below!
