Vermont Creative Network
Vermont is known as 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.
