    Thesis ideas

    A while ago I decided to embark upon a thesis that sought to measure the performance of publicly funded urban arts districts as catalysts of economic development and urban revitalization, looking at 3 case studies that have been around long enough for the effects of the district to be measured. But now I am considering a thesis that is essentially a plan or development strategy for an area that has just been deemed an arts district. Considering that my completed thesis proposal is due in a few weeks and the thesis itself is due by May (I really want it completed long before then), I was wondering if anyone here could offer any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Providence, RI has one of the more unique approaches. They offer income tax exemptions to artisits living in the district, and sales tax exemptions on their art which they sell in the district.
