Announcing the Vermont Creative Network's
Action Planning Process
This fall, the Vermont Creative Network will be creating something big: Vermont's first creative sector action plan. Learn more and register for the first event (FutureJam, Tues. Oct. 6) today!

What’s this about?

The action planning process builds upon extensive research and conversations about the needs and opportunities for Vermont’s creative sector. Now we’re ready to take the next steps: creating a vision and making a plan to grow.
  • We’re here to imagine a thriving Vermont creative economy.

  • We're here to connect creative people and businesses to resources and each other.

  • We're here to make Vermont the most creative state in the nation.
We need your help.

The action plan will only be as good as the actors. Help shape it by joining upcoming events and conversations, offering your ideas online, and connecting via social media. There are THREE easy ways to tap in.

This fall we're hosting a series of Tuesday "jam sessions" -- fun, informal, zoom meet-ups with other Vermont creatives. Join one (or all) to connect, network, share ideas, brainstorm, and help shape the future of Vermont's Creative Network. As a bonus, we’ll be raffling off gift cards and prizes at each session. Here are the details:
