Creative Summit | Spring 2020

Creative Summit:  Civic Engagement and Community Investment through the Arts and Creativity

Wisconsin Studio, Overture Center for the Arts, Madison
Register today (using the Creative Wisconsin Day registration form)!

Join your colleagues at the spring 2020 Creative Summit, happening the day before Creative Wisconsin Day. This informal, informational gathering is all about sharing your successes and challenges, telling your stories, learning from colleagues and peers, and strengthening your work.

If you are involved with and care about the arts and creativity in your community as a staff member, board member, volunteer, community activist or audience member – any and all of those – you should attend the Summit. Learn from old and new friends about the role, impact and benefits of the arts in their communities, and share what’s happening in yours.

Bring your best ideas and your curiosity, your brochures, posters and flyers to share about what you are doing, and anything else that shows off the uniqueness and authenticity of your work and your community.

If you’re attending Creative Wisconsin Day on April 16 (and we hope you are!), make the most of your time in Madison by also attending the Summit, and get in some good networking, learning and action-planning the day before.
