Join us TOMORROW! What's a Creative Conversation? Everyone interested in the future, locally and beyond - including artists, performers, arts organization representatives, arts supporters, educators, business people, economic and community development leaders, funders, elected officials, and civic leaders - are invited to let their voices be heard at a series of Creative Conversations throughout the state, presented by Arts Wisconsin, the state's community cultural development organization. Participation is free and all are welcome. The Creative Conversations are all about bringing people together on a local and regional level to network, learn, share, and strategize about the ways in which the arts and creative sector can help grow and strengthen Wisconsin for economic vitality, education for the 21st century, healthy and vibrant communities, and engaged residents. Arts Wisconsin is pleased to work in partnership with its board members, community captains network, local host organizations, and other dedicated arts activists, to present these Conversations. Arts Wisconsin's mission, vision and purpose are to strengthen Wisconsin's creative economy and ensure civic engagement through the arts and creativity. The Creative Conversations are made possible with funding and support from the Wisconsin Arts Board, Kohler Foundation, TDS Metrocom, and Herbert H. Kohl Charities. Anne Katz, Executive Director of Arts Wisconsin, will attend and facilitate each Conversation. Each gathering will include presentations on ideas, trends and initiatives for civic engagement through the arts and creative economy development, and small group discussions about current and future opportunities for artistic and creative growth. Arts Wisconsin's regional network, developed over nearly 25 years of service, provides a framework for the Creative Conversations. The Conversations are all about: o Increase advocacy and visibility for the arts and creative sector locally, regionally and statewide o Hear and discuss local and regional needs, concerns and ideas o Provide education about the impact, value and benefits of the arts and creativity, and national, state, and local trends and issues facing the arts and communities o Discuss ways for local activists to become involved in statewide efforts to grow Wisconsin's creative sector.
