Meet fellow WV artists and arts leaders.
Build strategies to shape the future of our industry.
Leave ready to take action.
We are at a pivotal stage in our history. Not only is the economic and social landscape of West Virginia changing, our creative industry is experiencing the culmination of a decades-long shift in American values. Rapidly advancing technology, an increasing reliance on big box stores, a declining emphasis on arts education, and other trends have led to radical changes in what it takes for entrepreneurs to build a successful business in the arts and creative fields.
How do we build a new path in light of these challenges, and how do we turn them into opportunities?
Make your voice heard and build actionable platforms to improve the state of the arts and creative industries in West Virginia today. Join with established and emerging artists from across the state to discuss how we can best work together to improve our chances of success.
