We are proud to reveal our new name and mission: Creative Alliance Milwaukee, an organization dedicated to to strengthening, advancing and representing the creative industries as an essential asset for growing a vibrant, attractive region.
Creative Alliance Branding to Come

We are working on a new brand identity to go with the new name and the new website. Stephen Cascio of Cascio Design - the creator of our Creativity Works! logo - is working with us and we hope to reveal it soon. 

Significant features of the re-aligned business:
  • A robust website designed to connect the creative community
  • A year-round networking strategy to find new opportunities and connections by building an ongoing learning community
  • Advocating for and building consensus around 'creative education' (the interface of arts, design and new media technologies)
  • Continuing to manage and develop our Milwaukee Arts Education Directory
I hope you all go to our new website and learn more about these exciting advancements!
