EVENTS & ACTIONS

CREATEVT Action Plan Launch!

 

Monday, May 3, 2-3:30 PM on Zoom

We've discussed and debated, gathered and researched, planned and strategized, written and chopped, designed and developed. And we're ready to release Vermont's first creative sector action plan. Join us to celebrate, see the draft plan, hear from statewide leaders, and find out how you can start taking action. Register below and save the date!

Thanks for jammin' with us!

Last fall, we held a series of virtual "jam sessions," with many chances for creative Vermonters to mix it up with each other, network, brainstorm, discuss, and create a plan for the future of our sector.

Jamboree Action Ideas and Resources

Our final event of the year was Jamboree! Nearly 150 people came together for a day of meet-up sessions, music, presentations, art work and action planning. We also heard from five great speakers about priority areas identified through this process and quick actions you can take right now. Explore below for some links and ways to dive into building a stronger creative sector. You can also explore this resource list with links shared by event participants.
