Vermont Creative Network
Vermont is known as the one of the most creative states in the nation. Creative industries and occupations provide 9.3% of all employment. From Bennington to Barton, arts and culture significantly bolster the local economy and are at the heart of Vermont's identity.
In 2020, the Vermont Creative Network completed an ambitious statewide study to document the scope and economic impact of the creative sector. Building on the research findings, the Vermont Creative Network launched CreateVT—a vision and action planning process. The final plan incorporates the ideas of thousands of people and serves as a roadmap for growing a robust, inclusive, and resilient creative sector.
Thank you to all who have submitted feedback since the launch party to help improve the final Action Plan. The public comment period has closed as of May 24, and Vermont Creative Network organizers are now reviewing submitted feedback.
