What does a thriving Vermont Creative Sector look like to you?
Our (emerging) VISION for a thriving Vermont creative sector
This fall, we gathered visions for a thriving Vermont creative sector from hundreds of creative Vermonters. Then we wove them together into one. Here's a snapshot of all the diverse visions and hopes. Check our draft vision and action framework to see the final tapestry.
A diverse group of Vermonters sat down for zoom interviews to paint a portrait of their vision for a creative Vermont. And while they talked with interviewers, artist Rebecca Kinkead painted a 30-minute portrait of each of them.
Check out their stories about Vermont's future.
During the FutureJam event on October 6, we asked participants to kick off the conversation by sharing a 6-word vision for a thriving Vermont creative sector. We've put their ideas onto sticky notes in an interactive online pinboard. We invite you to add to the mix.
