THE ARTS MATTER
Wisconsin Creative Summit | December 3, 2015 | Chestnut Center for the Arts, Marshfield

We know that you believe that THE ARTS MATTER.  It’s an interesting and opportune time in Wisconsin right now, with creative development happening like crazy on the local level around the state, and increasing interest from decision-makers about the value, benefits and impact of the arts and creativity for Wisconsin and all of its communities.

Right now, these are the kinds of questions we’re all asking:

  • Who is my community, why do we serve them and how do we serve them?
  • What is good about what we are doing?  What can we do better/tweak?
  • And how do we get there (wherever “there” is)?

Spend the day with people who are doing the same work  you are doing, facing the same challenges, exploring the same ideas.  Get other perspectives and suggestions to strengthen your work, and share your successes and challenges to do the same for their work.  

This just in:  we’re pleased that Terry Whipple, Director of the Juneau County Economic Development Corporation, will talk about innovation and entrepreneurship as our luncheon keynote speaker.  JCEDC is a non-profit organization that promotes the economic development of Juneau County, Wisconsin, and its respective cities, villages and towns.  Terry and Juneau County started the first Inventors & Entrepreneurs Club in 2003, to foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, bring people together to learn from their peers, and find the excitement in innovating and doing business. The Juneau County I&E Club model is recognized nationally, having inspired over 40 similar clubs in Wisconsin and numerous clubs throughout the Midwest.     

If you are a staff member, board member, or volunteer of a local arts organization, or, if you just care about what's happening in your community and in the arts, you should attend this conference.  Right now, it's more important than ever to come together with and learn from your colleagues about the role, impact and benefits of the arts in your community.  Empower your work for the opportunities ahead!

The Wisconsin Creative Summit is made possible by the generous support of the Wisconsin Arts Board, The Kohler Foundation, and the Herbert H. Kohl Charities. Special thanks to the Chestnut Center for the Arts for co-hosting.
