We’re asking creative entrepreneurs, organizations, businesses and agencies throughout Wisconsin to sponsor Arts Wisconsin in 2021, supporting premier events such as Creative Wisconsin Month, the Arts in the Community Awards, and Creative Economy Week, as well as our advocacy, technical assistance, and development to benefit creative businesses, people, and communities.

Our advocacy, service, and development activities in 2021 will be virtual for now, and in-person when the pandemic eases and public health guidelines permit (hopefully, by fall 2021).
