Join Arts Martha's Vineyard for the second annual Creative Economy Speaker Series. Be a part of the conversation about Creative Economy on the Island. To start off the series, we welcome Lyz Crane from ArtPlace. ArtPlace is a collaboration of national and regional foundations, federal agencies (including the National Endowment for the Arts), and six of the US' largest banks. They strive to accelerate creative placemaking in locales across the country. This past April, ArtPlace selected Vineyard Haven as one of America's Top Small Town ArtPlaces. This distinction recognized small towns where arts are central to creating the kinds of places where people want to live, work, and visit. Lyz will speak on behalf of the national agency, highlighting the central elements of creative placemaking. Bring your lunch; coffee and water will be provided.
