Join Us to Celebrate and Shape the Vermont Creative Network!

Don't miss the wrap-up event for our fall action planning process. Join us for a lunchtime Action Summit, a day of virtual meet-up sessions with creative peers, a surprise musical performance, and a chance to shape our final plan priorities!

Jamboree! is the final event in the Vermont Creative Network’s 2020 action planning process. Hundreds of creative Vermonters have spent the fall dreaming, envisioning, scheming, planning, and prioritizing ideas to catalyze our creative sector. Come see our draft action framework, vote for your priorities, learn about quick action areas, and keep connecting with your creative peers.
