EDC Arts & Culture: Case Studies

Providing an anchor for the revitalization of the River Arts District and adding to the eclectic brewing industry established in the area, New Belgium’s core values include "Kindling social, environmental and cultural change as a business role model" and "Environmental stewardship."
The company plans to add approximately 150 new jobs, which are estimated to support an additional 260 jobs and over $18,000,000 annually in labor income once established.
Moog Music's relocation from an industrial park to downtown shows its commitment to Asheville. The manufacturer transformed a once-abandoned building into a highly visible landmark. Similarly, the company envisions Moogfest will stimulate Asheville’s entrepreneurial and tech startup scene by attracting talent in technology, music and creative fields.
While you're here, experiment with one of Moog's world-famous electronic instruments, tour the factory to see how they're built, and maybe even catch a glimpse of one of the hundreds of recording artists who pass through the doors every year.
