DeKalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson will host a  summit focused on the multi-billion dollar creative arts industry on Aug. 28, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center, 3181 Rainbow Drive, Decatur.

Industry leaders in the creative field from the metro Atlanta area will share their insights in plenary and breakout sessions on how to break into this multi-billion dollar industry and turn your passion into your profession.
