Create Wisconsin Day returns, live and in-person Wednesday-Thursday, April 12-13

It’s time to come together in person – for the first time in three years! – to celebrate and speak up for the arts, culture, and creativity throughout Wisconsin.
Create Wisconsin Day (formerly known as Arts Day) is actually two days full of creativity, connections, and action: a networking and learning pre-conference on Wednesday, April 12, and Create Wisconsin Day on Thursday, April 13. The two days feature sessions and conversations, the Create Wisconsin Day Breakfast with featured speaker Nicholas Gulig, the new Wisconsin Poet Laureate, and other speakers TBA, performances and an artist-in-residence, meetings with elected officials, and more.
Creativity is the way forward for Wisconsin as we envision a post-pandemic world.  The creative sector is a $9.6 billion economic driver, according to the US Department of Commerce, encompassing over 83,000 jobs – more jobs than the state’s beer, biotech and papermaking industries. Investment in the creative sector will help grow and stabilize Wisconsin’s creative economy, workforce, and communities. Wisconsin’s arts and cultural assets are more important than ever to revitalize the economy, develop a 21st century workforce and incubate, attract and retain talent, provide opportunities and a good quality of life for all, and help our communities thrive.
Come together around these issues and more at Create Wisconsin Day. Read more in this case statement for creative sector investment.
