Back to the FutureJam
Rebecca Kinkead
Throughout FutureJam on Oct. 6, we were inspired by the amazing artists helping to document the conversation. Check out our emerging statewide creative vision in art and stories.
Portraits and stories: Throughout the day, artist Rebecca Kinkead of Cornwall painted quick portraits of a diverse set of creative Vermonters, while we interviewed them about their visions. Check them out online.
Juniper Creative Arts' artistic vision: Juniper Creative Arts artists Jennifer Herrera Condry, Will Kasso Condry, and Alexa Herrera Condry sat in on the conversations all day. Then they synthesized the visions they heard in a piece of original art. Stay tuned for the big reveal!
6-word visions: We kicked off each FutureJam session by asking attendees to share a 6-word vision for a creative Vermont. Add yours to the gallery!
