Growing Wisconsin Creatively

The Peninsula Arts and Humanities Alliance along with Arts Wisconsin will present a Creative Summit in Door County on Thursday, Nov. 20 at 10:30 am. Everyone interested in the future of their community and region – including artists, performers, arts organization representatives, arts supporters, educators, business people, economic and community development leaders, funders, elected officials, and civic leaders – is invited to let their voices be heard.

The Creative Summit will bring together activists in Door County and across the region 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.

The summit will accomplish the following goals: increase advocacy and visibility for the arts and creative sector locally, regionally and statewide; hear and discuss local and regional needs, concerns and ideas; 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; and discuss ways for local activists to become involved.

Anne Katz, Executive Director of Arts Wisconsin, will attend and facilitate the Summit. The agenda for the Summit will include presentations on ideas, trends and initiatives for the arts and creative sector, and small group discussions about current and future opportunities for artistic and creative growth.

The Creative Summit will be held at Birch Creek Music and Performance Center, 3821 County Hwy. E in Egg Harbor. Participation is free and all are welcome.
