Northeast Kingdom Creative Economy Action Plan

The Vermont Creative Network, in conjunction with the Vermont Arts Council and an advisory committee comprising Northeast Kingdom (NEK) arts and community leaders, has developed a creative economy action plan for the three-county region. Supported by grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Vermont Community Foundation, the recommended actions are designed to move the creative sector forward and raise community awareness of the power and potential of the creative economy.
