Wisconsin Artists and Creative Workers Town Hall 2.0, April 26

The Wisconsin Arts Board and its partners invite you to a second statewide forum to share your insights about what should come next in the recovery and stability of WI's arts ecosystem.

Our partners in this are organizations that are also missioned to serve you:  Arts Wisconsin, Association of Wisconsin Artists, Film Wisconsin, gener8tor art, gener8tor music, Imagine MKE, Mary Nohl Fellowships, Milwaukee Artist Resource Network, Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters, Wisconsin Alliance of Composers, Wisconsin Dance Council, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Wisconsin Visual Artists, and the Wisconsin Writers Association.

We know that artists and creative workers have been, and continue to be, absolutely crucial to WI's health and vibrancy.  As we move through the COVID-19 pandemic, address issues of racial equity and social justice, and re-establish Wisconsin's thriving creative economy, your work is more critical than ever.

With thanks to those of you who shared your wisdom, insight, and questions at our first Town Hall in December, we invite everyone to update us on how you're doing, what you need, what you want to offer, how we can help, and how we can best work together to determine where we go from here. 

So please join us on Monday, April 26 from 4:00 – 5:30pm for Wisconsin Artists and Creative Workers Town Hall 2.0!  ​​

Click here to register (registration is required) so we can send you the meeting connection information (be sure to include your email address).

The co-host organizations will be there to update you on the work that we've been doing with/on behalf of WI's artists and creative workers, and to listen to and learn from your updates.

As with the December Town Hall, we anticipate that the number of people attending will be greater than the number of minutes that we will have available, so not all attendees will have an opportunity to speak. Therefore, if you would like to speak, please note this in your registration. We will send you a confirmation if you are on the speaker list ahead of the web meeting, allotting 2 minutes per speaker. Speakers will be selected based on order of registration, with discretion of the event moderators to adjust the speaker list to ensure a broad diversity in our speakers.

Anyone is welcome to join the Town Hall as an active listener, posing respectful questions and comments in the Chat, or just listening.  We will take the Town Hall recording, chat record, and topics/questions posed in the registrations to help inform future discussions, resource development, and/or Q & A pages on our various art service organization websites.

We hope to see you on April 26.
